KENTISH GAZETTE, Winchester, England, April 21, 1795
* Mary Wollstonecraft
* Women's rights advocate
This newspaper has one of the more decorative & beautiful mastheads of the era. Note the two very detailed engravings on either side, one being the fabled Canterbury Cathedral. The back page has a brief item mentioned Mary Wollstonecraft, one of the earliest woman's rights advocates, with mention of her most famous book: "The author of the Rights of Women, Mrs. Woolstonecraft, is arrived from France in this country..." with a bit more (see).
Four pages, slightly irregular at the spine, nice condition.
