About This Item

Princeton, Mass.: Co-operative Publishing Company, [1879-1882?]. First edition.. Cheap paper stock somewhat toned but supple; some light wear and soiling; a very good copy.. Original printed wrappers, 9.38 x 5.88 inches, 23, [1] pages. A moderately uncommon title from Heywood, the anarchist free-love reformer here weighing in on liberty in relation to temperance and prohibition: "As well say, by statute, what church I shall attend, what books I shall read, as, by force or finesse, to take from me fluids which I choose for diet. Freedom of Conscience includes moral right of choice in beverages, the right to make up our bill of fare, to run one's own stomach. After the race has wrestled through the toil and agony of ages to get freedom of thought, speech and press, it is rather late to invoke Spanish Inquisition, mediaeval-fire-and-fagot, the invasive torture of fines and imprisonment to 'regulate' choice in drinks." Heywood is listed here as the corresponding secretary of the Union Reform League, which per Martin's Men Against the State met annually at Heywood's in Princeton from 1879 until it dissolved in 1882, suggesting a possible range of publication dates. (The 1889 date suggested in the OCLC record is a chimerical ghost, evidently the algorithmic substitution of a system unable to parse the uncertainties of a catalog record suggesting a publication date of 188-?) Type batter suggests a possible later printing. With extensive ads for radical publications available from Heywood.
