Green cloth stamped in black and gold. A little wear to edges, otherwise fine. One leaf section loose. Alice (1820-1871) and Phobe (1824-1871) were both authors, writing poetry with Alice writing short stories and novels of hardship of life in the west. Both were abolitionists and sympathetic to the woman's rights movement. Both left their Ohio homes for New York City where they supported themselves by writing--an unusual achievement for women in antibellum America. In fact, they established a well-regarded literary salon in New York. Their "at-home" Sunday evenings were frequented by Robert and Elizabeth Stoddard, Susan B. Anthony (Phoebe helped as an assistant editor on her journal Revolution) , Horace Greeley, John Greenleaf Whittier. This book is protected by an archival quality sleeve to maintain present condition.
