WINNING THE VOTE: The Triumph of the American Woman Suffrage Movement

Santa Cruz, California: American Graphic Press, 2005. First Edition. Hardcover. Special Edition, numbered (no limitation stated) and signed by Cooney. Published on the 85th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, and in collaboration with the National Women’s History Project, this lavishly illustrated volume focuses on the years from 1848 to 1920. The chronological chapters move, at first, by decades, and then, when discussing the most intense activity prior to winning the vote, by year. Each chapter begins with a narrative passage giving an overview of the period covered. The pages that follow offer vignettes, brief biographies, informatively captioned archival illustrations and other primary sources (posters, documents, political cartoons), and brief descriptions of events and incidents marking the struggle. A brief epilogue describes the political activism that the suffrage movement engendered and assesses its impact on women into the 21st century. Quarto. Original purple cloth binding, with gilt stamping, yellow endpapers, and a ribbon marker. The spine is very lightly sun faded; else a fine copy, housed in the publisher’s slipcase. Fine. Item #70208
