Description:
N.p., n.d. but ca. 1870s. Autograph letter on seven leaves of blue laid sheets (25x20.5cm.), rectos only, "Kent" blind-stamped at top left-hand corner of each leaf; occasional faint soil spots, minor shallow creases and faint fold lines, else Very Good or better. Extensive and rather rambling unsigned letter or lyceum address draft "To the President" (though which President, and of what, is not stated), in which the author, quite possibly a public figure based on references to his "detractors," strongly argues against women's suffrage: "would we have our females eschewing their more gentle nature, hardening the finer sensibilities of her mind by rushing to the ballot box? And mingling in the excitement of an election, thereby throwing off the garb of female modesty and timidity? I think not." Though the first leaf has the appearance of a clean copy, the author's hand begins to turn sloppy with a number of manuscript corrections in the later leaves. Due to a lack of contemporary references (Mary… Read More

Description:
New York, December 8th, [1895?]. Autograph letter, signed, on recto and verso of single cream laid sheet (22x14.5cm.); approx. 85 words; dated 26 West 61st, N.Y., Dec 8th, and simply addressed to "Parker," presumably Stanton's friend and fellow-suffragist Parker Pillsbury (1809-1898), who, with Stanton, had co-edited the women's rights newsletter "The Revolution" twenty years earlier. Faint mail folds, small unobtrusive archival paper remnants to two corners from having been previously mounted, else Near Fine and still quite fresh. Brief contemporary (1897) pencil note at bottom edge "Mrs. Stanton - born Nov. 12, 1815, Now past 82 - C.E.R.," though based on contents we would place this letter as having been written around 1895. Brief but significant missive addressed to Parker Pillsbury, the American minister and women's suffrage advocate, regarding a copy of Stanton's "Woman's Bible" she had just sent him. "I wonder if I could interest them [a "Mrs. White" and one other] sufficiently in the Woman's… Read More

Description:
New York: The Century Co, 1910. First Edition. Octavo (18cm); light green decorative cloth, stamped in black, dark green, and gilt; top edge gilt; 240pp, frontis., 10 plates. Boards moderately soiled and toned; mild edgewear and rubbing. Textblock shows reading wear, with light smudging throughout; dackled edges. Overall just about Very Good. Louisiana native Ruth McEnery Stuart, contemporary of Grace King and Kate Chopin, was especially known as an author and orator of "dialect" stories. Sonny's Father, the sequel to her popular Sonny: A Christmas Guest (1896) is written entirely in a southern dialect, as narrated by the eponymous father of Sonny, a precocious (and frankly spoiled rotten) boy who was born on Christmas day. Of particular interest may be our narrator's report of a suffrage meeting he attended and supported. Illustrators are not credited, but plates at pgs. 44 and 156 can be identified as the work of Jessie Willcox Smith.
