Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 1905. Ginn & Company.

'Sesame and Lilies' is a non-fiction book written by John Ruskin. In it, the author lays out the Victorian-era ideals of men and women's roles in life according to his perspective. Though his views are dated for today's sensibilities, the ideas espoused in this book were considered radically progressive for its time, in part due to its support for teaching women liberal arts.
