First Edition. "The mission on which the Ambassadors of the Woman's Republic were sent to Europe was one of peace and good will. As your narrative is making its appearance in print, the most disastrous war of all history is ravaging Europe. Many of the noble structures of which you write are falling a prey to hostile troops and invading armies. With its pitiless sacrifice of men, woman's sphere will so enlarge and strengthen that when peace at last shall come, she will find herself in a new position — a position of equality and partnership with man". Uncommon title, especially so in dustjacket. Near Fine in Good, modestly edge chipped dustjacket.
