Ruth and Marie: A Fascinating Story of the Nineteenth Century.

[N.p. n.p.], (1895). This issue without the imprint, noted by Wright as a later edition, though likely an early reprint from the original plates. 8vo, original blue cloth, gilt and black lettering, 363 pages. Frontis, illus. Somewhat musty; a trifle worn; a fine copy. Item #10115

A rather sprawling and disjointed social novel, set in San Francisco, and dealing with temperance and labor unrest: "God led the children of Israel out of bondage into the light of security and peace, and so will He lead on the temperance reform and settle the Labor question." The plot includes a municipal railway strike as well as much on working women. Cf. Wright III, 409.

Price: $25.00
