1 "Sexist" small napkin

3 [Sexist Valentine] A Valentine from the "Little Woman"
Minneapolis Buzza Craftcres 1941 NA Very Good 
Seven pages, each with an illustration of a pretty housewife who is inept around the house but loves to be her man's slave! Measuring 14.5 by 13.5 cm. She burns the toast, makes bad coffee, can't get the gas back on, can't fix the plumbing or balance the budget, yet she is a pleasure to the eye in applying herself to these tasks. With a red background, on paper folded over, with a piece of foil pasted on to depict the toaster. Very much a card of its times. With a short inked inscription on the final page. Otherwise, fine condition.

Similar Cases, Gilman, Charlotte Perkins
4 Gilman, Charlotte Perkins Similar Cases
1957 Heavy card boards, with paper pastedown. Fine 
A beautiful calligraphic manuscript rendering of the humorous poem by the influential feminist Charlotte Perkins Gilman. 12mo. 16.5 by 12.5 cm. Unpaginated, 14 leaves (writing only on rectos) with content. Human evolution is the source of the poem's fun, with a "who would have thought" that a rodent-like animal, or an ape, would have given rise to homo sapiens? And thus the poem is championing those who dare to conceive of a different order of things, and implicitly, this poet was surely defending the vision of feminists. The title page is embellished with the figure of a monkey worked into, and suspended by, the lettering. We don't know who the calligrapher was, other than the final page tells us "Written for Kay, by Aunt Enid, 1957".
