4to. 23.5 by 16.5 cm. 22 pp., with 12 hand-colored plates. Ackermann satirizes the fashion for Bloomers, named after Amelia Bloomer, an American who introduced the style in 1851. It was not just about the clothes, for it was seen as a part of the women's movement, embraced by women who thought it liberating, decried by those who identified it with sin, and it became the grist for the lecture circuit. Seldom in commerce, with only two auction records found -- 1981 and 1919, and no other copies listed on the Internet for sale at the time of our cataloguing. OCLC First Search notes copies at Harvard, Morgan, Princeton, British Library, Danish Nat. Lib., and a defective copy at Murdoch Univ. Condition: Two text leaves (3/4, and 9/10, are facsimile copies. Plate III, "The Amazon", has a small paper restoration where there was an edge chip. Minor scattered soiling besides. Overall, the plates are in fine condition.
