the love letters of mary wollstonecraft to gilbert imlay

A signed and numbered handmade 80pp limited edition of 50 copies set in Garamond type on A5 90gsm St Cuthbert's Mill watercolour inkjet paper, quarter bound in faux suede.

The great proto-feminist, writer and philosopher, Mary Wollstonecraft, was born in 1759. In 1792, soon after publishing her seminal Vindication of the Rights of Woman, and an unrequited love for the married artist Henry Fuseli, she left for Paris during the height of the French Revolution. There she met and fell in love with the American adventurer Gilbert Imlay. In this illustrated edition, the letters tell of her inital intoxicating love and it's subsequent dramatic and heart-rending decline.
