1890 printing. Front and end matter foxed, some light spotting on front board, ink gift note on front endpaper. 102 pp. Grey cloth, gilt titles, black decorations on front board. A collection of engravings with commentary by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, the noted utopian feminist and author of The Yellow Wallpaper. This was her first work, and is published under the name Mrs. Charles Walter Stetson, perhaps to leverage his reputation in the art world (Davis, Charlotte Gilman: A Biography). Stetson was her first husband, to whom she was married for only four years. She would later take the name of her second husband, Houghton Gilman. Charlotte's art training at the Rhode Island School of Design and her progressive opinions regarding the place of women in society are both evident in this work.
