[Geneva], Tip. Iskry, 1902.

8vo. 19, (1) pp. Original printed wrappers bound within modern full red cloth with giltstamped title-label to spine.


First edition of this extremely rare political pamphlet against the Socialist Revolutionaries. Attacking their programmatic views and tactics as well as advocating the social democratic cause and the peasant movement, Lenin accuses the Socialist Revolutionaries of "tearing Marxism to shreds". His essay is essentially a polemic against the SR's use of terrorism as a substitute for Iskra-style political agitation.

Stamp of the "Russischer Leseverein Zürich" to title-page with handwritten shelfmark number to title-page. A small tear to title-page; occasional light foxing.
