Mill, John Stuart.  The subjection of women. Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott, 1869. 12mo (19.2 cm; 7.5"). 174 pp.
$400.00

First American edition, issued the same year at the true first, of Mill's political philosophical advocacy for equality between the sexes. The ideas expounded here were the result of Mill's collaborative work with his wife, Harriet Taylor Mill (d. 1858). He completed the manuscript in 1861 but clearly there was a considerable delay in having it presented to the public.
        Needless to say, the concept of equality between the sexes was beyond then-current Europena conventional norms.
        Provenance: "F.S. Barter" on the front pastedown.

Publisher's green pebbled cloth. Text block a little skewed. Overall a very nice copy.  (37824)   Please RESHELVE This.
