 ADE, GEORGE, Fables in Slang
ADE, GEORGE
Fables in Slang
New York: Grosset & Dunlap, 1899. Early Reprint. Hardcover. Illustrated by Clyde J. Newman. B&W Illustrations; This book is in Very Good+ condition and is lacking a dust jacket. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. The spine ends and corners of the book covers have some light bumping and rubbing. There is some beginning fraying to the spine ends as well. The text pages are clean and bright. There is a previous owner's inked name on the front pastedown page, and another on the obverse of the title page. There is also an ink stamped previous owner's name and address on the front pastedown and front endpaper. "Ade's literary reputation rests upon his achievements as a great humorist of American character during an important era in American history: the first large wave of migration from the countryside to burgeoning cities like Chicago, where, in fact, Ade produced his best fiction. He was a practicing realist during the Age of (William Dean) Howells and a local colorist of Chicago and the Midwest. His work constitutes a vast comedy of Midwestern manners and, indeed, a comedy of late 19th-century American manners. In 1915, Sir Walter Raleigh, Oxford professor and man of letters, while on a lecture tour in America, called George Ade "the greatest living American writer." " (from Wikipedia).

 BEECHER, HENRY WARD, Star Papers: Or Experiences of Art and Nature
BEECHER, HENRY WARD
Star Papers: Or Experiences of Art and Nature
New York: J. C. Derby, 1855. 1st Edition; 1st Printing. Hardcover. This book is in Good to Good+ condition and was likely issued without a dust jacket. The book and its contents are in generally clean, solid condition. The spine ends and corners of the book covers have some edge wear, bumping, rubbing and fraying. The bottom rear corner has been nibbled by a rodent (just the very edge of the corner). The brown cloth cvoers are noticeably rubbed and a bit faded. The text pages are generally clean, but do have some spots of foxing throughout. "After the war, Beecher supported social reform causes such as women's suffrage and temperance. He also championed Charles Darwin's theory of evolution, stating that it was not incompatible with Christian beliefs. Widely rumored to be a womanizer, in 1872 the Woodhull & Claflin's Weekly published a story about his affair with Elizabeth Tilton, the wife of his former associate Theodore Tilton. In 1874, Tilton filed adultery charges against him for the affair. The subsequent trial, which resulted in a hung jury, was one of the most widely reported U. S trials of the century. Beecher's long career in the public spotlight led biographer Debby Applegate to call him "The Most Famous Man in America." ". Good .

Later in the 1960s, she participated in the anti-war movement, the feminist movement and the Gay Liberation movement. She was involved with the Student Homophile League at Columbia University in 1967 but left it because the men in the league were not interested in women's rights. She was involved in the Redstockings, but also left the group because of its lack of involvement in lesbian rights. She then went on to join the Gay Liberation Front, where she suggested the formation of an all-lesbian group, since many of the women felt excluded from the feminist movement and the male-led gay liberation movement."
