First Edition, Victory How Women Won It, A Centennial Symposium, 1840-1940, 174 pp, by The National American Woman Suffrage Association, inscribed by Catt to Russell. This book is number 12 of the 300 copies printed in 1940 by The H.W. Wilson Company in New York. A wonderful chronology of the history of women struggling for the right to vote. Nice printed photographs pictures and biographies of those involved in the women’s movement, including Catt, Susan B. Anthony, Lucy Stone, Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Anna Howard Shaw. Also included is a photograph of the signing of the 19th Amendment, June 5, 1939.
Expected toning, light wear to cover, but overall in very good condition. Very fine piece of history from the president of this notable and important organization to the treasurer and a low number in the press run.
