Absolutely losing my mind trying to find this book

There's a book called 'A Month Among the Men' by Maryse Choisy (not to be confused with the more available 'A Month Among the Women by Maryse Choisy') which I have been unsuccessfully hounding down for days. I think it was originally published in 1929 but the most common edition seems to be the Pyramid Books English run from 1962. I can't find it anywhere and am losing my damn mind. It's a long shot, but does anyone have any leads, even for a pdf? Or (longer shot still) own a copy? You would of course be welcome to my firstborn in return.

This book would be eye-opening for a lot of left unity and "libertarian" marxists

History is a much better context for learning theory and its nuances than just straight expositions of theory like Emma Goldmanir Malatesta. I learned a lot from them but that can't compare to what I've learned from books like this, histories of Spain and Spanish anarchism, the Russian Revolution, the North Atlantic slave trade, the formation of the Canadian state and home market, etc.

If you want to understand socialism learn about the First International.

This book is incredibly well-researched. My only priblem is that I would have liked the author to take Bakunin more to task about his antisemitism. I think a rather long chapter could have been dedicated to that subject and of national-ethnic bigotry in the International in general, as well as homophobia (I've heard Marx used this against Bakunin but I don't have sources beyond the grapevine).

Trying to get back into fiction while also trying to get some work done for a project on eastern Canadian history

Don Quixote, the Idiot, Journey to the West, and Shakespeare's plays have been my favorite piecea of literature for a very long time. It's nice to return to them.

Daughter of Revolutionary cost an arm and a leg lol But it seems incredibly worth it. A collection of letters by Natalie Herzen, her father, Bakunin, nechayev and others. An interesting and fucked up group of people lol

The Political Philosophy of Bakunin is incredibly interesting and the only synthesis of Bakunin's many scattered, fragmentary works and ideas.

We Are Not the Savages doesn't strike me as the strictest history and the liberalism of the author is often apparent (comparing institutions like the Wabanaki Confederacy to NATO seems kinda ridiculous to me, for example) but it's an incredible work none the less and I believe everybody on the east coast should read it.

The collection of essays of pre-confederation atlantic Canada is great so far although it's far too focussed on settlers and the contributers are far from the best group to be communicating Indigenous history.

I can't wait to read the history of Imperial Standard in Canada when I'm finally done of the above-mentioned project.

Bakunin sure was intense (from "The Political Philosophy of Bakunin" edited by G.P. Maximoff)
