About This Item

Vintage Books, New York, Publishing date in question. First Ed was 1909, renewed in 1936. Softcover, 8vo. Three drawn women's profiles with black lettering on orange background. Very good to Fine throughout. A very noteworthy book -- said to have "brought the English language back to life."

Synopsis

Gertrude Stein, as a college student at Radcliffe and a medical student at Johns Hopkins Medical School, was a privileged woman, but she was surrounded by women who were trapped by poverty, class, and race into lives that offered little choice. Her portraits of Anna and Lena are examples of realistic depictions of immigrant women who had no occupational choice but to become domestic workers. This collection of documents from the history of women's suffrage, medical history, modernist art, and literature enables readers to see how radical Stein's subject was.
