1914 Meditations on Votes for Women, Samuel McChord Crothers. First edition, with scarce dust jacket


Still in its dust jacket, this first edition 1914 Meditations on Votes for Women, would be difficult to find in a nicer condition. This 1914 work, by the popular essayist Samuel McChord Crothers, gently encourages giving women the right to vote.

From the last pages:

"Those who believe that the next inevitable step in the evolution of democracy is to give every adult citizen the suffrage do not minimize the practical difficulties. They only declare that there are weighty and solid reasons why we should go forward and not backward. It is right that thoughtful women should hesitate before assuming new responsibilities. But if they are convinced that they public welfare can be served by them directly instead of indirectly, they will respond with 'answerable courages.'"
