Paglia, Camille. FREE WOMEN, FREE MEN: SEX, GENDER, FEMINISM. New York City, NY: Pantheon, 2017. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 350 pages. Fine/Fine.

Retrospective collection of essays. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. "Autographed Copy" white round sticker pasted in front. Presents Camille Paglia's "Free Women, Free Men: Sex, Gender, Feminism". Her provocative essays on feminism, gathered in one accessible volume. "A brilliant, urgent essay collection that both celebrates modern feminism and challenges us to build an alliance of strong women and strong men. Ever since the release of her seminal first book, 'Sexual Personae', Camille Paglia has remained one of feminism's most outspoken, independent, and searingly intelligent voices. Now, for the first time, her best essays on the subject are gathered together in one concise volume. Whether she's calling for equal opportunity for American women (years before the founding of the National Organization for Women), championing a more discerning standard of beauty that goes beyond plastic surgery's quest for eternal youth, lauding the liberating force of rock n' roll, or demanding free and unfettered speech on university campuses and beyond, Paglia can always be counted on to get to the heart of matters large and small. Illuminating, witty, and inspiring. Essential reading that affirm the power of men and women and what we can accomplish together" (Publisher's blurb). An absolute "must-have" title for Camille Paglia collectors. This Autographed Copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Camille Paglia. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. It comes with a pristine copy of the lovely 2018 Chicago Humanities Festival Book Souvenir during which event Paglia was a headline speaker. This title is a contemporary classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online have serious flaws, are subsequent printings, or are remainder-marked. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. One of the most important and influential American intellectual voices of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER CAMILLE PAGLIA TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0375424776. $50.00
