1 Alexander, Alison and Prue Torney-Parlicki A Wealth of Women Australian Women's Lives from 1788 to the Present
Australia Duffy & Snellgrove 2001 Papeback Very Good None issued 23.5cm 
Book is in jolly good order, only 2 lib stamps (no card/pocket marks at all),300pp with numerous bw photo sections throughout, pp clean & tightly bound, approx 600g, Here is the story of the lives of ordinary Australian women from 1788 to the present. Drawing on the information provided by hundreds of families, as well as material and photographs from archives never before published, Alison Alexander has created an enthralling and different history of a nation. While famous women get a brief mention, this is mainly the story of the rest of us. It contains humour and despair, tragedy and considerable achievements, many of them unsung until now. The book is enlivened with brief and often funny stories of individual women's hopes and experiences, while a series of 'snapshots' reminds us of the changes in important aspects of life, from fashion to educations, from cooking to health.

2 Burns Edward (ed) LETTERS OF ALICE B. TOKLAS, STAYING ON ALONE
USA Liveright 1973 1st Hardcover Very Good Very Good 23.5cm 
This book from a US county library but may have been a reference work rather than a lending copy, reference card at rear, id on spine, plastic wrap, VGood condition. Clean pages. Clean, unclipped jacket. 426 well bound pages with bw photos throughout. Edited by Edward Burns, intro by Gilbert Harrison. review - Gertrude Stein died in 1946, 20 years before Alice B. Toklas met her own end - - the personal letters in this nicely illustrated volume (over 400 pages) are chiefly the ones that Alice wrote to numerous people of note subsequent to Stein's death. The earlier-period Toklas letters are not included here. Toklas was a remarkable lady and one would be hard-pressed to unearth a friend who was more devoted to her companion. Anyone who said something negative about Stein was immediately relegated to Toklas' lengthy S***-list. Much of the correspondence here (maybe 40%) was sent to her mentor of sorts, Carl Van Vechten and his lovely wife Fania. Other letters went to people like Sir Francis Rose, Brion Gysin, and so on, often yielding unique insights on Stein's and Toklas' numerous acquaintances and friends such as Picasso, Juan Gris, Virgil Thomson, and many other people of historical significance. Documentation of the escalating feud between Toklas and the Stein family subsequent to Gertrude's death also provides great trivial fodder for the reader's consumption. For fans of the two ladies, however, this book is a treasure trove of "hot gossip" and insight on Toklas' compelling personality.

3 Caine, Barbara Victorian Feminists
Clarendon Paperbacks 1993 Paperback Very Good None issued 21.5cm 
284pp & just under the 500g mark - This is a study of Victorian feminism which focuses on four leading feminists: Emily Davies, Frances Power Cobbe,Josephine Butler, and Millicent Garrett Fawcett. This approach enables Barbara Caine to uncover the range, diversity, and complexity of Victorian feminism, and to examine the relationship between personal experience and feminist commitment. Professor Caine sets her carefully researched biographical studies of the four women, each with her own fascinating history, in the context of the Victorian feminist movement. She explores the ideas and strategies of feminists in the late nineteenth century, analysing the tensions which arose as they sought to achieve their aims. In particular, she traces the complex relationship between party politics and feminist commitment. Barbara Caine's insight into the vision and beliefs of these Victorian feminists is balanced by her scholarly understanding of the society within which they worked. She gives us vivid and perceptive portraits of four very different individuals, who nevertheless shared a commitment to improving the lot of women.

6 Lucas, John The Radical Twenties: Writing, Politics, and Culture
Rutgers Uni Press 1997 Softcover Very Good None issued 21.5cm 
-from cover > This book brings together writers from the 1920's who have never before been collectively studied in regard to their political radicalism. Drawing on the works of D. H. Lawrence, Virginia Wolf, Sylvia Townsend Warner, Ivor Gurney, Patrick Hamilton, and others, John Lucas identifies the decade as a time of both political activism and of deliberately transgressive behavior, particularly among women. The book meets head-on the argument of earlier commentators who take for hedonism of the Bright Young Things. Against such elements, Lucas places the work and lifestyles of those who, even if they began by regarding themselves as members of the "lost generation," were determined to find ways out of despair. review >>> "A stimulating and generous-spirited book." -- Times Literary Supplement 263 crisp white pp, less than 500g for post to you.
