This pamphlet was full of hope and the prospects of engineering an economic relationship with the United States during a period of turbulence in Cuba, two years before the ratification of the progressive constitution of 1940. Printed in Havana in July 1938, it calls for "A frontierless Fourth of July" and "Dedicated by the Socio-Economic Union of Cuba to the people and Government of the United States of America". It came to me via the Library of Congress which in turn acquired it from the U.S. Supreme Court, which got rid of the document only a few months after it was received. Let's just say that this was a most unexpected piece of cover art.
