Overview

In the School of Anti-Slavery, 1840-1866 is the first of six volumes of The Selected Papers of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. The collection documents the lives and accomplishments of two of America's most important social and political reformers. Though neither Stanton nor Anthony lived to see the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920, each of them devoted fifty-five years to the cause. Their names were synonymous with woman suffrage in the United States and around the world as they mobilized thousands of women to fight for the right to a political voice.

Opening when Stanton was twenty-five and Anthony was twenty, and ending when Congress sent the Fourteenth Amendment to the states for ratification, this volume recounts a quarter of a century of staunch commitment to political change. Readers will enjoy an extraordinary collection of letters, speeches, articles, and diaries that tells a story-both personal and public-about abolition, temperance, and woman suffrage.

When all six volumes are complete, the Selected Papers of Stanton and Anthony will contain over 2,000 texts transcribed from their originals, the authenticity of each confirmed or explained, with notes to allow for intelligent reading. The papers will provide an invaluable resource for examining the formative years of women's political participation in the United States. No library or scholar of women's history should be without this original and important collection.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This volume is the first in a six-volume set intended to document the interlocked careers of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. It covers their youthful interests in the antislavery movement and temperance, as well as their interest in women's rights. In addition to information on Stanton and Anthony, readers will find useful source material on such significant figures as Antoinette Brown Blackwell, Sarah Grimke, Lucretia Mott, Wendell Phillips, and Charles Sumner. Editor Gordon (Rutgers Univ.) also provides copious, pertinent illustrations. Anyone interested in the history of 19th-century American reform movements would find useful primary source materials here, and feminist historians interested in the period should obtain this volume and probably its projected successors as well.Susan A.
