The Book of Woman's Power E. R. Lee Thayer 1911 FIRST EDITION Women's Suffrage
Macmillan. ALL COMICS GRADED BY CBCS STANDERDS GUIDE. This 1911 edition of The Book of Woman's Power is in a lovely publisher's binding. I also adore the title page, which was illustrated by E. R. Lee Thayer (as was the rest of the book). Ida Minerva Tarbell, who wrote the introduction for this book, is best remembered for being a "muckraker" and a pioneer of investigative journalism who did irreparable damage to John D. Rockefeller's Standard Oil Company and is widely thought to have hastened its breakup. Tarbell opposed many ideas in the women's suffrage movement, as this book illustrates. The Book of Woman's Power is filled with essays (most of them written by men) about the inherent nobility of woman's natural role in society-that of a mother and a wife. Tarbell's introduction warns plainly that working in industry might lead women "to believe even dimly that there are happier or more useful things than those to which she instinctively turns." VERY RARE ORIGINAL IN DARE I SAY IT ...NEAR FINE CONDITION. [Attributes: First Edition]
Bookseller: atticus-paper (fabric-of-time) [Dallas, Texas, United States]
