click for a larger image of item #34714, Patriarchal Attitudes London, Faber and Faber, (1970). "But woman is taught to desire not what her mother desired for herself, but what her father and all men find desirable in a woman." Inscribed by Figes to her parents: "To Mummy & Daddy with love/ Eva/ 23rd May 1970." This was Figes's first book of nonfiction, a feminist classic published the same year as Greer's The Female Eunuch and Millet's Sexual Politics. Spine- and edge-sunned; a near fine copy, in a supplied, near fine dust jacket. [#034714] $1,000
click for a larger image of item #34728, Equinox, Winter Journey, and Nelly's Version London, Secker & Warburg/Faber and Faber, (1966, 1967, 1977). Three of Figes's early novels, each inscribed by Figes to her parents. Her unaccountably scarce first novel, Equinox, is inscribed "To Mummy & Daddy with all my love/ Eva" and is very near fine, in a supplied, very good but edgeworn dust jacket. Her second novel, Winter Journey, is inscribed: "To my parents with love and gratitude/ Eva." Fine in a fine dust jacket. Nelly's Version is unsigned but is inscribed "To Mummy with love/ July 1977" (Figes's father having passed away in 1973). Oddly, the rear flyleaf has been excised; otherwise the book presents as near fine in a near fine dust jacket. Exceptional association copies by one of the key feminist writers of the 1960s and 70s.
