The Russian Revolution by Leon Trotsky

I found this at Moe's for $3. It's an Edward Gorey Cover I've been looking of since I first started looking for them.

I don't think he did the illustration but I'm pretty sure he did the cover text. The earlier Anchor Doubleday's don't list the illustrators in the actual book.

I always wondered why this book was so scarce, cause I seriously looked everywhere for it. It did come out in the 50s during the red scare, but I don't even know anyone old enough to tell me if that would stop a reader from getting their hands on a book by Leon Trotsky.
