Contemporary ownership signature on the front end paper. Some water staining to the first dozen pages, good. Scarce. Printing and the Mind of Man 242; Evans 28122. Editions were published in Philadelphia and Boston in 1792. The most influential book every written on the rights of women. Wollstonecraft, later Godwin (1759-97) was dissatisfied with this tract, yet its passion and inclusiveness fully merit its classic status[Blain, p. 1180]. Wollstonecraft has been called the first major feminist because of this work, in which she discussed all aspects of women's education, status, and position in society and dramatically argues that true freedom necessitates equality of men and women[Schlueter, p. 482].
