First editions of these two pamphlets, the first (noted on the last leaf as "Second Issue, Sept. 25,
1873": apparently there was an earlier appeal): A Congress of Women, one leaf folded into six
pages, is a call for woman to convene a Congress with the intention of founding an Association
for the Advancement of Woman, appending a list of distinguished women who constitute the first
members including Dr. E. Blackwell, Mary A. Livermore, Lucy Stone, Elizabeth Cady Stanton,
Mrs. Ralph Waldo Emerson, Julia Ward Howe, Sarah Grimke, Antoinette Brown Blackwell,
Frances E. Williard, and many others, as well as a list of topics that will be discussed at the first
meeting.
The second pamphlet, Association for the Advancement of Woman. First Annual Congress, 1873,
prints the Constitution of the organization, and names the officers (Livermore served as
President) and Executive Committee.
OCLC locates no copies of the first pamphlet and one copy of the second pamphlet.
