8vo, pp. 324. Ex-library copy with bookplate on the front paste down, wear at the extremities of the spine (lacks a small piece of the cloth on the spine above the title). First signature a little loose, a very good tight copy. Scarce. After fighting to study for the ministry at Oberlin College, Blackwell (1815-1921) followed a successful career as a lecturer, speaking on woman's rights, anti-slavery, and temperance in Pennsylvania, Ohio, New England and New York. before being finally ordained as a minister of the First Congregational Church, Wayne County, NY. She was the first ordained woman minister of a recognized denomination in the United States. She stayed in the official ministry only a year, being dismissed at her own request in July of 1854. She continued to lecture on the same platform with Susan B. Anthony and Amelia Bloomer and was very active in the woman suffrage movement. She published 11 books [which] . are a religious and philosophical exploration of the universe, society and woman's role .[Blaine p. 101]. "It cannot be doubted that the great question of to-day, for Science and Religion equally, pertains to the nature and to the duration of Personal Life. The inquiry embraces all lives; our own, and those of other beings who are either above or below mankind in the scale of existence; but who may possess, like ourselves, the similar attribute of an individualized consciousness.".
