Boston: Sarah E Holmes, 1888. The definitive edition of Andrews's most important work, regarded by James J. Martin as "the finest statement of Warrenism ever written" (Men Against the State, p. 153). This edition republishes two separate works originally published in 1851. The first had been delivered earlier as a lecture at the New York Mechanics Institute. As originally published the two works were anticipated to be the first two in a series of publications presenting the author's solution to social problems of his time. A third was never issued. This edition, from the radical anarcho-feminist publisher Sarah E. ("Lizzie") Holmes, includes an introduction by Benjamin R. Tucker and the first apearance of George Ripley's review of Josiah Warren's Equitable Commerce together with Andrews's reply to Ripley. This edition is the basis for all later reprints and is described by Goodspeed in a 1970 catalogue as "definitive." Octavo. Original green cloth-covered boards, lettered in gilt on front cover; 165pp; each part with separate title page. Nicely preserved in original cloth, just minute wear to extremities; internally clean, tight and unmarked.
