Sale Price $252.00
Two-page essay on Democracy and War, which Dorothy Thompson signed "This is very nice of you" on page 1. Thompson was kicked out of Nazi Germany for her reportage from there, so one suspects she agreed with this essay's sentiment.
Autograph note signed "This is/very/nice of/you-/Dorothy/Thompson". 2 pages, 8½x11, single-sided pages. Titled: "Democracy and War". This essay (author unknown) argues that democracies like Great Britain, and not dictatorships like Nazi Germany, are more efficient and effective at fighting wars. Thompson doesn't appear to be mentioned in this essay. However, since she was kicked out of Nazi Germany by Adolf Hitler in 1934, one suspects she agreed with its sentiment. In 1939, Time magazine rated journalist Thompson (1893-1961, born in Lancaster, New York) as the second-most influential woman in the United States; the first was Eleanor Roosevelt. One of her first journalistic coups was, in a twisted way, a reporter's dream come true, when Adolf Hitler kicked her out of Germany in 1934 for her reportage of Nazi Germany, making her the first American reporter to be expelled from that country. Back in the states, she began writing the newspaper column On the Record for The New York Herald, which was eventually syndicated in 170 papers. Lightly toned and creased. Page 1 has missing right corner. Folded once horizontally and twice vertically and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition.
