San Francisco: Published by Women's Union Print, 1871.
Softcover. First edition. Octavo. 6pp. Original printed wrappers. Light soiling on the wrappers else very good. Laid in are two letters from Roger Levenson to Roby Wentz dated in 1959 and 1962 with details of his research on the Women's Co-Operative Printing Office. This legal document is a product of one of San Francisco's earliest women-run print shops. In 1868 Agnes Peterson founded the Women’s Co-Operative Printing Union (WCPU). It was later taken over and run by Lizzie G. Richmond, who permanently relocated printing operations to Montgomery Street. The WCPU was an extremely important marker in the history of women printers as it was operated by women and staffed primarily with women. Levenson, *Women in Printing* 72. *OCLC* locates two copies (Yale and California Historical Society).
