(Anarchism) (Feminism) Mușoiu, Panait. Emanciparea Femeei. Bucharest: Marinescu & Şerban, 1899. 6-¾ x 4-¼ in., 79 pp.; in printed wrapper, rear adverts for other Mușoiu books and translations (incl. the first Romanian trans. of Marx’s Communist Manifesto), wrapper smudged with small mark from a paperclip to top edge, pages largely uncut, toned and brittle but still very good.
Early Romanian feminist manifestos by author, publisher, and leader of the Romanian anarchist-syndicalist movement. Mușoiu’s work was overlooked in histories of European anarchism until 2013, when the first major monographic study of his life and philosophy was published (Martin Veith, Unbeugsam: Ein Pionier des rumänischen Anarchismu). These papers were radical statements of women’s equality at a time when Romanian women lacked basic legal and political standing.
