Adam's Rib
NY, Harcourt, Brace, (1931). "A shameless discussion of [the] autonomy of the American female," this is an early feminist tract celebrating female employment, purchasing power, visibility, independence, intelligence, education, and even spinsterhood. Inscribed by the author to the artist Edward H. Suydam, "from your future collaborator," and dated in March, 1931. Suydam would illustrate Winn's Macadam Trail, her 1931 book about making a loop of the United States by "motor coach." First edition, in red boards: near fine in a near fine, price-clipped dust jacket, with an unfaded spine. The rear flap advertises Woolf's A Room of Her Own. Scarce in jacket, and especially so as an association copy. [#034717] $375
