Wraps. With a few illustrations within. Single issue of this review of literature, authors and related topics. Of note in this issue is an essay by Mary Austin, "American Women and the Intellectual Life," in which she examines and critiques the way in which women are treated in society as intellectual inferiors, when often they have obtained as much, if not more, education and success, than their male counterparts, discussing the ways in which gender influences treatment. Christopher Morley contributes a brief study of Vachel Lindsay, and Amy Lowell edits the section on poets of the month, offering somewhat critical insight into that month's selection. GOOD condition. Minor soiling, toning and foxing to the wrappers. Moderate to heavy chipping and tearing along the edges.
