London: The Humanitarian, A Monthly Review of Sociological Science. 1894. First Edition. Disbound. Very Good Condition. Item #239873
13 pages, 17 pages. With a portrait of Victoria Woodhull. Note; this is an original article separated from the volume, not a reprint or an offprint. Written by one of the most interesting women of the nineteenth century. Perhaps most striking amongst her achievements was running for President of the United States in 1872, likely the first woman to do so, and with the former slave Frederick Douglas as her running-mate. She sought further nominations in 1884 and 1892. Later in her life she campaigned with views on abortion, eugenics, vegetarianism, sex education, prostitution, free love, and even short skirts. By 1877 she was living in London and met her third husband, banker John Biddulph Martin, and married in 1883. Under the name Victoria Woodhull Martin she began publishing "The Humanitarian", running from 1892 to 1901. Her husband died that year and she gave up publishing. Woodhull died in 1927, having lived a life with careers as varied as a Stockbroker (first woman on Wall Street to own her own brokerage, with her sister), a newspaper editor, women's rights advocate, and member of the First International. In Britain her chief contribution to public life was through the publication of "The Humanitarian", in which she was helped by her daughter Zula. Size: Octavo (standard book size).
