Ships That Pass in the Night
London, Lawrence & Bullen, 1893. The bestselling novel by the British suffragette and writer, who made a name for herself through her activism and her art, sometimes in combination, as when she used her play Lady Geraldine's Speech as a platform to promote women's suffrage. 1893 date printed on title page and in the dedication; publisher's advertisements in the rear dated Autumn 1892. Small bookstore stamp and penciled owner name in prelims; front hinge cracked, therefore a good copy only, but uncommon in the first printing. [#033889] $200
