Found an interesting book.

From my post in the EBay and Collectors group.


I also found an interesting book, Franchise, by Mrs. Belle L. Rudy. Only about 83 pages and appears to be an early women's rights book. Dated 1895. Looking on line I've seen some reprints, not sure if this is an early reprint or not. Looks to be very vintage

Part of preface.
The full purpose is to convey to beloved woman the freedom of thought, speech, and above all the freedom and equality of the ballot. Whereby the legislation of our country may be purified.


Does anyone have any information about this book?

1. Here is the book, but reading page 28 and 29 may ruin it for most people.

2. In the context of 1895, this language is pretty common.

I've own several late 1800s County History books. Most of them use this language in speaking about Native People. Just looking at suffrage issue, it is before its time.

But thank you for the link. Now if I could find out if it has any value and if not to whom I might donate it to.
