About this Item

Large 8vo, pp. 336, iv. Bound in publisher's cloth, (covers show effects stains which affect the end papers, the top margin of the endpaper and the first seven leaves has some of the paper torn (or eaten away, this does not affect the text) A note on the condition of these volumes. As described above the bindings show varying degreees of wear. This was a very unsuccessful journal and these volumes come from uncirculated stock that remained with Gilman's descendants. All of these books seemed to have been kept in poor conditions and all of the material from this source shows some binding damage. Volume 6 contains the first appearance of Gilman's novel, 'Herland,' serialized; complete in twelve parts). "Called by Aileen Kraditor `the most influential woman thinker in the pre-World War I generation in the United States' Charlotte Perkins Gilman combined socialism and feminism to provide a coherent theory of women's oppression, and offered intellectual backing for the movement for women's rights. Out of her lectures came the book Women and Economics (1898) which made her famous overnight"[Tuttle, Encyclopaedia of Feminism p. 126]. She is best remembered, however, for the The Yellow Wall-Paper [1892]. NAW: Beginning in 1909 she wrote, edited and published her own monthly magazine. This remarkable undertaking contained works of fiction (published serially), editorials, news, and poems, all on the position of women and the need for social reorganization. With less than a thousand subscribers, it was never a financial success and Mrs. Gilman reluctantly brought it to a close in 1916, estimating that the writing that she had done for it would have filled 28 long books.
