Vancouver: C.C.F. B.C. Section, 18 mo (6.75"). Stapled Wraps. n.d. (but circa 1942 from internal evidence); pp. 1-14 +  + [1, blank]; Title and party insignia on front cover in red. Published during the war, and scarce in any condition, this booklet discussed various issue "vital to the future of Canada", and was a direct appeal for new members. In historical perspective, it is a desirable ephemeron of Canadian political history, evidencing, as it does, the platform of the precursor of the modern New Democratic Party, and explicitly its left-wing foundation: "No CCF government will rest content until it has eradicated capitalism and put into operation the full program of the socialized planning which will lead to the establishment in Canada of a Co-operative Commonwealth" (Quoted from the Regina Manifesto of 1933). The booklet is in very good condition, evidencing age-toning of the cream-coloured wraps at the spine, light discolouration at the hinge pp. 10-11, and one marginal vertical line in pen by a single paragraph on p. 11. It is otherwise a sound, clean copy, without creases or previous owner names.
