The Plough Woman - Records of the Pioneer Women of Palestine, by Rachel Katzenelson-Rubashow

Published by Nicholas L. Brown in 1932, 306 pages. Used Hardback (S5076)

This fascinating book is a collection of accounts by and of the Jewish women workers of Palestine in the first quarter of the 20th century. Originally issued in Hebrew by the Council of the Women Workers of Palestine, the book was published by the Pioneer Women;'s Organisation (PWO) in 1932

The Pioneer Womens Organisation, founded in New York in 1925, had grown to around 3000 members by the time this book was published in 1932. While the group's primary emphasis was to establish a Jewish homeland in Palestine along cooperative and socialist lines, it had an internationalist perspective on women's cooperation and sought to conduct a constructive cultural activity among the Jewish working women of America

The condition of the book is generally ok. The blue cover boards have several minor scuffs and blemishes, and light nibbling and bumping along the edges, but the spine is intact and all pages are intact and unblemished. Ex library, with two labels on the inside front cover, a small sticker on the first page, a stamp on the title page, and another label on the inside rear cover, as well as a small label on the outside spine. The title label on the outside spine is worn and chipped, and the frontpiece page (showing the photograph of a woman and horse) is completely detached from the binding, but all other pages are tightly bound. Some page leaves (especially towards the end of the book) have also been left rough-cut by the publisher
