London: Longmans, Green, Reader, and Dyer, 1869. 188p.; small ownership label (Charles Clark, Totham, 1866] Essex) in three fonts and a neat small period (1872) owner's signature on front paste down, original matte-brown endsheets are in good condition, tiny binder's fiche on rear pastedown. First edition, light blue pencil marginalia with a few legible notes at end of text, also in blue pencil. Original yellow cloth boards panelled in blind, gilt spine lettering is somewhat dim and the area surrounding this title is slightly grimy; the entire casebinding has been carefully cleaned save for the titling; very subtle restoration to spine ends. Top edge a little dusty. All four corner-tips slightly bumped. Over all a sound copy in very good condition of a landmark work.
One of the foundation stones of the early women's rights movement.
