[book is modestly but evenly worn, front hinge a little weak; jacket spine is completely gone, and the remainder of the jacket is heavily chipped along all edges (but with no significant loss of jacket text)]. An anti-suffrage screed, with the sort of title that makes you want to say "oh yeah? so show me!" Well, a quick rundown of some representative chapter titles will give you a pretty good snapshot: Chapter I, "Woman Suffrage a Moral Error"; Chapter VII, "Man, the Head of Woman"; Chapter XII, "The Moral Fall of Women and the Church"; Chapter XIV, "Woman Suffrage AntiChristian." From the front jacket panel: "When woman lusts after temporal power her spiritual significance suffers, having a tendency to make her less modest, less kind, less motherly, and, in general, less womanly, which is fundamentally and morally wrong." I tried digging up a little biographical information about the author, but didn't find anything except for the fact that this was apparently the only book he ever wrote. To be honest, I didn't try very hard, because I figured the very best thing to be said about him is that he's been dead for a long, long time.
