    Susan B. Anthony signed copy of the account of her trial "on the Charge of Illegal Voting"

    Susan B. Anthony Signed Presentation Copy of An Account of the Proceedings of the Trial of Susan B. Anthony, on the Charge of Illegal Voting, at the Presidential Election in Nov., 1872... Rochester: Daily Democrat and Chronicle Book Print, 1874. 212pp. 5.75" x 9.25". First edition. Inscribed, "With Compliments of Susan B. Anthony, Rochester N.Y." on the top wrapper; with cello tape over the autograph. Original printed wrappers bound in later cloth. Slight toning to the front and rear wrappers with small piece missing from the back wrapper, else near fine. Interior pages are very clean. The printed transcript of the famous trial in which Anthony was convicted of illegal voting and fined $100. After her conviction, she told the court: "I shall never pay a dollar of your unjust penalty" and, true to her word, she did not. This is an exceedingly rare printing, last sold at auction in 1999 for $1500. That copy had the ownership signature of Edwin T. Marsh (one of the defendants), but was not signed by Anthony. From the Judith Kaplan Women's History Collection.
