        Autograph Quotation Signed.

      Jan 25, 1924, NP - Autograph Quotation signed in full, "Women vote on equal terms / with men in 26 countries / of the world. / Carrie Chapman Catt / Jan. 25, 1924". On card stock, 5-1/8" x 3-1/4", soiled on rear where traces of glue and paper remain, a bit of edgewear, else very good. Carrie Chapman Catt (1859-1947), suffragist and women's rights advocate, was Chairman of the Committee on Organization, a committee created after she persuaded Susan B. Anthony of its necessity. Catt proved an able lieutenant to Anthony and succeeded her as the head of the NAWSA in 1900. She developed a two-prong campaign which came to be known as Mrs. Catt's "Winning Plan" [NAW] and which sought passage of a suffrage amendment while continuing to push for winning suffrage for women on a state level. Her tact and statesmanship won over Woodrow Wilson and other influential politicians. [Robert Booth Fowler's essay "Carrie Chapman Catt, Strategist" in ONE WOMAN, ONE VOTE is an invaluable for its fine analysis of Catt's political skills. He emphasizes how controversial her "winning plan" was when Catt insisted be pursued on the federal level.] Catt cleared the path for the 19th Amendment by leading the NAWSA in a campaign in 1917 to unseat four unsympathetic senators. As a politician and a general she was quite prepared to promulgate a 'take no prisoners' policy when necessary. Her life's work culminated in 1920 with the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment giving women the vote. According to NAW, "To Mrs. Catt more than any other single figure beside Susan B. Anthony.American women owe their right to vote." NAW I, pp. 309-313. Wheeler, One Woman, One Vote, pp. 295- 315.

Keine Zeitschrift, die unsere liebreizenden Leserinnen nur mit züchtigen verschämten Wangen in märchenhafter Zurückgezogenheit zwischen Spitzen, Parfüms ... lesen können. Bei aller Freiheit, welcher wir uns bei der Auswahl des Materials hingeben, soll doch das obszöne Moment verhindert werden, ohne die ausgelassene Lust in Bild und Wort zu beeinträchtigen." - Mit Beiträgen von Fred Antoine Angermayer, Alfred Baresel, Hugo Poethko, Waldorf-Eck u. v. a. Illustrationen von Plantikow, Paul Kamm, Pindur, Cavon, J. Fenneker u.v.a. - Im KVK finden sich nur wenige Hefte der Jahrgänge 1921 und 1922. Dietzel und Hügel kennen nur die Hefte 1 und 2 des Jahrgangs 1925. - Ohne den fliegenden Vorsatz. Sehr gut erhalten.

        The Bab Ballads

      London - Macmillan and Co, 1924. London - Macmillan and Co, 1924 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A beautifully bound copy of Glibert's Bab Ballads, illustrated with his own comic drawings. Gilbert wrote the Ballads before he became famous for his comic opera librettos with Arthur Sullivan. In writing the Bab Ballads, Gilbert developed his unique topsy-turvy style, where the humour was derived by setting up a ridiculous premise and working out its logical consequences, however absurd. The Ballads also reveal Gilbert's cynical and satirical approach to humour. They became famous on their own, as well as being a source for plot elements, characters and songs that Gilbert would recycle in the Gilbert and Sullivan operas. The Bab Ballads take their name from Gilbert's childhood nickname, and he later began to sign his illustrations Bab. Condition: In a full calf binding with gilt tooling to the spine. Externally, in lovely condition. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and mainly clean, with just some very slight marginal browning. Overall: FINE..
