"Gentles, Let Us Rest!": A Paper on the Position of Women

Riverside, CT: Frederick C. Bursch / Hillacre Bookhouse. 1914. 16mo. 56pp. First edition thus.

Galsworthy's essay in support of women's suffrage, reprinted from "The Nation," London. Here published by Hillacre Bookhouse, the second of two imprints run by the American typographer and book designer Frederick C. Bursch, whose presses gravitated towards material of a more radical nature.

Cardstock boards with brown wrap-around jacket pasted on at the spine. Paper label on front panel. Front gutter split about 2/3 of the way down from the top; does not affect structural stability at all. Else fine. A remarkable example of this uncommon title, of which OCLC locates only 19 copies.
