In keeping with the Stack Collection’s parameters of including only post-1800 published volumes, this small, decorative Penguin book, A Vindication of the Rights of Woman, makes the cut. First published in 1792, this edition was published in 2004 as part of Penguin’s ‘Great Ideas’ series. It is number 11 of 20, all featuring a stunning cover in red, white, and black. Other titles in the series include Seneca’s On the Shortness of Life, Thomas Paine’s Common Sense, and Virginia Woolf’s A Room of One’s Own.
