First edition, first impression of a contemporary negative portrayal of the Suffrage Movement for young girls. The book follows Ainslie’s two wood-doll characters as they join the cause, create mayhem, and end up in jail before deciding that they much prefer to be good girls who “go home quietly”. An attractive and scarce book, with copies known at only two institutions, Oxford and The British Library.

Small quarto. Original pictorial wrappers. Housed in a green cloth box. Chromolithographs throughout. Gift inscription to front free endpaper. Wrappers a little rubbed and marked, spine tanned, contents toned. An excellent copy.
