1 BUSHNELL Women's Suffrage; the Reform Against Nature.
19TH-AM-NY-NY-SCRIBNER 
BUSHNELL, HORACE. Women's Suffrage; the Reform Against Nature. By Horace Bushnell. New York: Charles Scribner and Company. 1869. 12mo. Bound publisher's green cloth with gilt lettering on spine, spine ends and corners fraying, 1.5cm dia. spot on front cover, covers soiled & rubbed some, green endpapers, pages lightly tanning and with light foxing.

First Edition. Horace Bushnell (1802-1876) Congregational minister and theologian. While considered forward thinking in some of his theological views, he opposed women's suffrage. In chapter 7 titled "Probable Effects," Bushnell states: "The look will be sharp, the voice will be wiry and shrill, the action will be angular and abrupt, wiliness, self-asserting boldness, eagerness for place and power will get into the expression more and more distinctly, and become inbred in the native habit (p.135). The active, campaigning work of political life is certainly in quite too high a key for the delicate organization, and the fearfully excitable susceptibilities of women(p.138). We also know that women often show a strange facility of debasement and moral abandonment, when they have once given way consentingly to wrong (p.142)" Etc.

The author in his introduction, emphasizes the importance of women's education, based on the assertion that women were the primarily educators of children both male & female. He proceeds to decry "the preference which many parents, as well as teachers give to the driving, rather than to the leading system of teaching; and the principle of envious rivalship, most falsely called 'generous emulation...' The driving system consists simply in carrying the verb flagellare--to flog,--flogging,--flogged, through all its various moods, tenses, participles, gerund, and supines on the bodies of its victims... Boxes on the ears are substituted for the vocal sounds which should be addressed to the understanding through those organs; birching is applied in lieu of argument...
