This early work by Charlotte Perkins Gilman was originally published in 1899.

Born in Hartford, Connecticut, USA in 1860, Gilman was the great niece of Henry Ward Beecher and Sister to Harriet Beecher Stowe.

She went on to become a sociologist and writer of both fiction and non-fiction.

The Yellow Wallpaper is her most notable work, being a semi-autobiographical short story about a woman's struggle with mental illness.

This is a fascinating book and is thoroughly recommended for anyone with an interest in feminist literature and historic attitudes towards mental health.

Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive.

We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions.
