Notes

First edition of this popular collection of essays by the philosopher, poet, and early activist for gay rights Edward Carpenter (1844-1929), considered "unique because as well as documenting the material conditions of women under capitalism, it mapped the inner life of struggle and personal transformation involved in realising the 'new life' under socialism" (Brown and Corns, p. 100). The chapters first appeared as separate pamphlets published by the Labour Press, 1894-5. A variant blue cloth binding with foliage patterned endpapers and an additional advertisement leaf at the rear is also known, without known priority.
