LOEB, Harold
Life in a Technocracy: What It Might Be Like
Viking, New York, 1933. First edition. Fine in fine, price-clipped dustwrapper with a very faint spot on the spine. Book length essay on the possible effects of a technocracy on American life. Loeb was an important figure in the Paris expatriate community. He is remembered in the literary world as the model for Jake Barnes's rival for the affection of Lady Brett Ashley in *The Sun Also Rises*, where his early kindnesses to Hemingway (using his influence with Horace Liveright to get *In Our Time* published) was repaid by being portrayed as Robert Cohn, the cowardly and especially "Jewish" villain. Loeb's views on a political movement which, though largely forgotten today, had numerous adherents between the wars. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
