Notes

First edition, first impression, casebound issue. There is also a wrappered issue, with the same Press advertisements printed on the rear wrapper and the price of "sixpence net" being the only difference to the front illustration. No priority has been assigned. Though both are relatively scarce in commerce, this is the first casebound issue we have handled.
This work is based on a number of articles Pethick-Lawrence first published in Votes for Women, the periodical he co-founded with his wife Emmeline Pethick in 1907, and explains various tactics and political developments to its sympathisers, alongside providing arguments to convert unbelievers to the cause, most notably explaining and defending the militant actions which had been taken by activists. The Women's Press, the publishing arm of the Women's Social and Political Union, was founded in 1906, and was likewise run by the Pethick-Lawrences.
