The Other Kind of GirlNew York: B.W. Huebsch, 1914. First Edition of this purported autobiography of a prostitute. The introduction is strongly feminist, “A new era has come. The Sisterhood of Woman is the new cry. When women come into their own they will stand shoulder to shoulder and refuse to let their sisters be exploited by men.” Women did not achieve universal suffrage in this country until six years later. Whether this book was written by a woman is unknown; a late, scholarly friend of ours suggested that the publisher may have utilized Louis Untermeyer to write this. Huebsch was a remarkable publisher who embraced controversial subjects and authors (most prominently, James Joyce). Minor cloth staining; near fine in a very good dust jacket.
