San Francisco: Cubery & Co., n.d., ca. 1894. First Edition. Flyer for the People's Party, a populist agrarian political party founded in 1891 which merged with the Democratic Party in 1896. Mrs. Carrie F. Young appears to have begun her political career in the early 1880s as a member and lecturer of the Oakland Health and Temperance Club and superintendent of the Scientific Temperance Instruction in the Public Schools of Alameda County. First mention of Young lecturing for the People's Party appears to date around 1894, when she delivered an address on white slavery at a Populist ratification meeting in June, 1894 (see the San Francisco Call, June 24, 1894). Uncommon broadside: OCLC locates one copy as of September, 2016, at Berkeley, giving the date as 1892. Original broadside flyer (30x45cm.) printed in black on off-white stock; faint vertical fold, stock rather brittle and uniformly toned due to poor paper quality, several shallow losses along extremities, none approaching text. Near Very Good overall.
