    The four volume set titled "The History of Woman Suffrage" was a collaborative effort by Anthony, Gage and Stanton, with the first volume of this set signed by the mother of Woman's Rights, Susan B. Anthony. Dated 1903, Anthony writes to Mrs. P. D. H of the "Political Equality Club" of Phelps, New York. "This huge vol. IV is sent to you because of your contribution to the Standing Fund and it's transfer to the publication of this book. May your club prosper and you and all women of the United States, reap the harvest of Full Enfranchisement - is the hope of yours sincerely. Susan B. Anthony." Written 3 years before her death, Anthony never saw the fruits of her labor, as Women did not gain the right to vote in the United States until 1920. The books show wear along the spines and several have sheets torn from the cover page. All pages are there with some containing excellent portraits of Suffrage leaders. Vol IV contains the autograph and inscription has all pages intact and is in particularly good condition. What great content in this note from Anthony in an effort to keep the movement going forward. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
