Bertha von Suttner
First Edition, assumed, 1893
About the author: Bertha Freifrau von Suttner, born Countess Kinsky, in Prague in 1843 was an Austrian pacifist and writer. In 1876 she married Arthur Gundaccar von Suttner against the violent resistance of his family. The couple fled to the Caucasus for a friend's estate. It was there where they both started writing. They returned to Austria in 1885. Bertha von Suttner, with her social-ethic-pacifist novel "Die Waffen nieder!" (1889), gained wide circles of recognition for the pacifist movement. At a meeting with Alfred Nobel in Zurich, she encouraged the foundation of a peace prize. In 1891, she founded the Austrian Society of Peace Friends and became Vice-President of the "International Peace Building" in Berne. In the following years, she worked tirelessly as a speaker and participant in World Peace Conferences, international discussion forums and interparliamentary conferences. In 1905 she received the Nobel Peace Prize. In 1912 she undertook a six-month lecture tour through the USA. 1914 - ten days before the outbreak of the First World War - she succumbed to cancer in Vienna.
