Description

Tis my pleasure to offer "Art Gems For The Home And Fireside" by Mrs. Charles Walter Stetson. (Charlotte Perkins Gilman) New York: Hurst & Company; Publishers, 122 Nassau Street. Copyrighted, 1890, By J. A. & R. A. Reid. Book measures approx 15" by 11". The text and illustrations are the same as the first edition, but small by about 3/4 of an inch smaller all on every side.

Charlotte Anna Perkins was born July 3, 1860 in Hartford, Connecticut. Her father was a member of the Beecher family, which was a relatively big deal. The Beechers were probably the most famous family in the United States at the time. Harriet Beecher Stowe, the author of Uncle Tom's Cabin; Isabella Beecher Hooker, a famous suffragist; and Catharine Beecher, an educator and author of A Treatise on Domestic Economy were all Charlotte's great aunts, and she counted Henry Ward Beecher, pastor of the Plymouth Church of Brooklyn as her uncle.

Charlotte Perkins Gilman July 3, 1860 - August 17, 1935, was a prominent American novelist, writer of short stories, poetry, and non fiction, and a lecturer for social reform. She was a Utopian feminist during a time when her accomplishments were exceptional for women, and she served as a role model for future generations of feminists because of her unorthodox concepts and lifestyle. Her best remembered work today is her semi-autobiographical short story, "The Yellow Wallpaper", which she wrote after a severe bout of postpartum depression.

This is Charlotte Perkins Gilman"s rare first book. With a fierce passion for women’s rights inspired by individuals and events throughout her lifetime, Charlotte Perkins Gilman established herself as a well-known feminist dedicated to the cause of female independence in America in the late eighteen hundreds. She maintained her beliefs of individual freedom, and expressed her views in over 1,200 works of literature. Her life of literature transcends most, and with it she leaves behind lasting legacies that have helped to mold America into the nation it is now.

***********************************************

Book is in Good Condition, the cover front and back. is not really worn, rather it is discolored from age and being around the fireside, I would imagine. This fits because some pages, not many have smudge marks from turning the pages, and there are only a few signs of foxing. The spine top and bottom is slightly bumped, but spine is tight. There are 103 pages with 50 works of Art depicted by well know artists, and text written by Charlotte Perkin Gilman.This is a solid book and a extremely rare find!

I found only a 4 copies of this book, it was a larger version, copyright 1888 J. A. & R. A. Reid. The prices were $9000, $8500, and 2 for $5000. This version is copyright 1890 J. A. & R. A. Reid, but it shows Hurst & Co; Publishers. There are no copies of this edition to be found at all! I have been selling books in one form or another for over 17 years and I can't find any reference to this work. It has the same amount of pages, the copyright is the same except it was printed two 2 years later.

I am offering the only copy I can find of this printing. Abe books, one of the power houses in book selling admitted to not even knowing any version of this book existed until a year or so ago. They are offering two of the books priced above. This artwork might not exist except in these few books! Her husband was the famous artist Charles Walter Stetson.

Mrs. Charles Walter Stetson ( Charlotte Perkin Gilman) body of work and how it helped to frame society itself, can only be understood by looking into her life story and her writings. Please go to The Charlotte Perkin Gilman Society home page, just google (The Charlotte Perkin Gilman Society) and click on online resources., ;there is a wealth of information there.

I am lowering the price so those who would find this work a treasure, could afford to purchase it. The price is still high but this work is a diamond in the ruff and the return on it High.
