The Girl Who Wouldn't Mind Getting Married

London: [no publisher, 1887].

First edition. Oblong quarto. 11.5" x 9". 12 lithographic plates. Cord-tied leaves printed rectos only. Small chips on the front wrap, a couple of tears, and a few small stains. Humorous illustrations reflecting the attitude of the the Liberated Victorian Feminist, who observes knowingly the absurdities, gross inadequacies, and unsuitability of the young men in her circle: "All the good young man are so painfully mild... the handsome ones are so insufferably vain... the artistic ones are so frightfully affected... the hasty men use such dreadful language... and anyhow, she's in no hurry!"
