Inkling Books, Nov 14, 2005
"The Garden of Eden" was first published in 1875. This version is a 58-page facsimile of the version in The Human Body The Temple of God published in 1890 London. Here Victoria Woodhull explains her controversial idea that the biblical story of the Garden of Eden is an allegory about the human body. This ebook includes as Chapter 3, "Press Notices," which are eugenic-related selections from newspapers and letters articles published in The Human Body. "The Garden of Eden" is Chapter 4 in the book, Lady Eugenist: Feminist Eugenics in the Speeches and Writings of Victoria Woodhull. Many readers may prefer to get that printed edition instead or have it purchased by their public or school library, so others can use it. (Lady Eugenist is also available as a ebook.) This ebook also includes one additional chapter from Lady Eugenist: the introduction, Chapter 1, "Was Victoria Woodhull the First Eugenist?" The entire ebook is 102 pages long, and there are no digital rights management restrictions on the reader's ability to print or cut-and-paste.
