The enduring satiric 19th century classic of life and culture living within two dimensions. Section IV is especially revealing: ". . . A Female in Flatland, a creature by no means to be trifled with. . . whenever the temper of the woman is exasperated by confinement at home or hampering regulations abroad, they are apt to vent their spleen upon their husbands and children; and in the less temperate climates the whole male population of a village has been sometimes destroyed in one or two hours of simultaneous female outbreak. . . I have actually known a case where a Woman has exterminated her whole household and half an hour afterwards, when her rage was over and the fragments swept away, has asked what has become of her husband and children!" Well, there you have it! A very scarce book in very good condition, printed upon fine papers.
