The Ogre of Europe: A Study of a Living Dead Man Trotsky, in Cosmopolitan Magazine March 1930

New York: International Magazine Company, Inc., March 1930. First edition. Periodical. This is an early periodical appearance of Winston S. Churchill’s character sketch of Leon Trotsky, printed seven years before its inclusion in Churchill’s book Great Contemporaries. This fragile periodical is in good plus condition. Internally the pages are clean and crisp for a magazine of this age. The front and rear covers retain their vibrant colors though there is some soiling, most pronounced at the top of the front cover. There is a small loss to the bottom of the spine. This issue also includes works by Rafael Sabatini, P. G. Wodehouse, and Aldous Huxley. Churchill's essay, which first appeared in Nash’s magazine in December of the previous year, is actually a response to Trotsky’s refutation of Churchill’s portrait of Lenin in his 1929 book The Aftermath, the fifth volume of Churchill's history of the First World War. Although this essay was later included in the first edition of Great Contemporaries (1937), delicacies of wartime allied relationships resulted in expunction of this essay from the 1942 reprint.
