One of the World's Greatest Books, Written by an American Scientist Thirly Years

Ago, is Now First Offered at a Popular Price.

Ancient Society

OR

Researches in the Lines of Human Progress from Savagery Through

Barbarism to Civilization.

Lewis H. Morgan, LL. D., the author of this book, is the one American scientist whose pre-eminence is recognized in all the universities of Europe. He gave a lifetime to original research into the life and customs of barbarous tribes, and from the data thus secured has thrown a flood of light on the early history of our own race.

“Respectable” people, who have enough property to live on the labor of others, and who want to hold that property as long as they live and hand it down to their children, so that these may in their turn grow fat from the labor of the people without property, are interested in having people believe that our present system of property, marriage and descent has always existed and must always exist. But the scientific facts are otherwise, and the PROOF of this is in Morgan's Ancient Society.

It is a book of 586 large pages, full of interesting facts about the marriage customs of our ancestors, and the primitive communism in which there were no rich and no poor. It will help you see that the law of Evolution applies to people as well as to animals and plants, and that this law is bringing an end to the capitalist system that starves children to make millionaires.

This great book has until lately been sold for $4.00. Our price is $1.50, and this includes postage to any address.

THE ORIGIN OF THE FAMILY, PRIVATE PROPERTY AND

THE STATE. If you want to know more about the facts we have mentioned, but can not just now spare the price of the large book or the time it would take to read it, then you should read Frederick Engels' "Origin of the Family.” This is a book of 217 pages, in which the most important and interesting of Morgan's discoveries are explained in a simple, clear and interesting fashion. Important facts from other sources bearing on the subject are also given, and the author goes on to draw conclusions from these facts that are of vital interest to every wage worker. Even if you read Morgan's book you should read this one too. Cloth, 50 cents, postpaid.

LATEST BOOKS

SOCIALISM, ITS GROWTH AND OUTCOME.

By William Morris and Ernest Belfort Bax. Cloth, 50 cents.

This is one of the socialist classics. Charmingly written and easy to read, it also contains an immense mass of historical information of the utmost value to every student of socialism. Until now it has been obtainable only in an imported edition at $1.25. Our fiftycent edition is an object lesson in co-operation.

VITAL PROBLEMS IN SOCIAL EVOLUTION.
Ten lectures delivered at the Garrick Theater, Chicago, by Arthur

M. Lewis. Cloth, 50 cents. The third volume of the Lewis lectures. Those who have read Evolution, Social and Organic, and Ten Blind Leaders of the Blind need not be urged to send for the latest volume; others will do well to read all three. Mr. Lewis is a thorough student of social science, with an attractive way of telling what he knows.

SOCIALISM AND MODERN SCIENCE.

By Enrico Ferri, translated by Robert Rives La Monte. Cloth, $1.00.

Another classic of socialism just added to our list. It was formerly published in New York, but we have now bought the plates and copyright, and have issued it in the handsome style of the International Library of Social Science.

OUT OF THE DUMP.

.

A Story by Mary E. Marcy, with Eight Drawings by Ralph H.

Chaplin. Cloth, 50 cents. The book is a voice from the depths. Its outlook is from the viewpoint of the very poor.

It is a plea for broader sympathy, for a better understanding of conditions of life on the lowest levels. On its face, it is written with full and intimate knowledge.Chicago Inter Ocean.
