The Female Eunuch
(London), MacGibbon & Kee, (1970). The uncorrected proof copy of the true first edition (British) of one of the defining books of the second feminist wave, an international bestseller that called out sexual oppression, the idealized female image, domestic servitude, and patriarchal condescension. Greer famously hoped her book would "quickly date and disappear," but much of it is still relevant to the struggles of the fourth (and counting) feminist wave. The plain brown wrappers have some creasing, and there's a small coffee stain on the title label; still near fine. Extremely scarce as a proof. [#034655] $1,000
