2 [Brook Farm] Francis George Shaw. The Harbinger, Devoted to Social and Political Progress.

Volume I. (West Roxbury): The Brook Farm Phalanx, 1845. Contemporary half leather, gilt, and marbled paper boards. Volume 1, number 1 through number 26, June 14 to December 6, 1845, 26 consecutive weekly issues, bound together with a title page and index. Edited by George Ripley. This volume contains an essay by Francis George Shaw, “The Women of the Boston Anti-Slavery Fair” (4 October, 1845, pp. 268-270), in which “He demanded that society open all spheres of activity to women and raged against the legal and social infirmities of married women.” (Foote, Seeking the One Great Remedy, 2003, p.59). In his own words, “(in) the usual call for the annual Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Fair….(we see) the names of many women whom we know to be fitted for any position, and capable of any work, for which Society will open a sphere to them.” He calls upon women to free themselves from their semi-slavery before they can effectively save chattel slaves. Shaw has another article in this volume, a review, “Essays of Thomas Parsons”, in which he scolds Parsons for denying that men have free will, that God is in control of each life (pp. 163-4). Also present are the first 16 chapters of “Consuelo” in 25 parts, and a review of it by John Sullivan Dwight. Spine leather nearly gone, otherwise sound. Light foxing, endpapers browned. Each issue uniformly folded once, vertically.
