Mrs. Gaskell and her Friends.

SKU: 10669

Haldane [1862-1937] became the first female Justice of the Peace in Scotland. She was a suffragist, social worker,  philosopher, biographer, nursing administrator, and author. She studied Mrs Gaskell in terms of the relationships she had with friends like Charlotte Bronte, Florence Nightengale, and others. Haldane quotes from letters and other primary sources throughout. Jane Austen is mentioned many times in the text, not always in ways we might take as compliments today.   Red cloth with gilt title. Some wear to spine. Very light occasional foxing. D.
