I recently had a facebook message from Penny Dreadful Vintage alerting me to a book she had found for sale online. When I took a peek, I knew I had to buy it!
For those who of who don't know, I run Wonderful Women: Minding Our Own Business, a networking group for awesome business women in London and Norwich.
The book is complete with an inscription:
It says, ''Miss Nancy Barnes, Christian Endeavour Convention, Bristol 1938''.
It has no publication date, but it is clearly 1938 or earlier.
The book is a collection of 12 mini biographies, on twelve wonderful women:
1. Florence Nightingale
3. Agnes Weston, The Sailors' Friend
5. Mrs Judson of Burma
7. Mrs Walter Searle
8. Harriet Beecher Stowe
9. Mary Slessor
11. Charlotte Maria Tucker
12. Grace Darling
In the series was also Twelve Marvellous Men and Twelve Mighty Missionaries.
