First Edition, First Printing. Signed and inscribed by the author, Upton Sinclair, to silent film star, Charlie Chaplin, on the front free endpaper. Inscribed: ÒTo Charlie Chaplin with best wishes. Upton Sinclair.Ó 315 pages with a two-page ad for ÔUpton SinclairÕs MagazineÕ featuring endorsements from such well known authors as H.G. Wells, Frank Harris, Havelock Ellis, Eden Phillpotts, H.L. Mencken, etc. Very good lightly used copy with gilt-stamping to the front board and spine gleaming, with some minor edge wear, a 3Ó x 3/4Ó faded rubbed spot to the cloth at the bottom of the front board, and a hint of darkening to the cloth at the spine without dust jacket. The book focuses on what Sinclair proposes as the corruptive influence of economics on the worldÕs major religious faiths, including Evangelists, Holy Rollers, Mormons, Christian Scientists, and faith healers. According to Leon HarrisÕ book, Upton Sinclair, American Rebel, SinclairÕs writings had a profound effect on actor Charlie ChaplinÕs political points of view, thus inspiring his interest in Socialism. It was Chaplin who brought Sinclair together with famed Russian film director, Serge Eisenstein, which led to SinclairÕs subsequent financial support for EisensteinÕs ill-fated film project, Que Viva Mexico. All in all, a compelling association. Codice inventario libreria 16198E
