Book Description

Booklet (20.7 x 16.8cm, in 8s), pp. 98, [2] + b/w frontis and plates, pages stapled. Cream illustrated paper wrappers, lettered and decorated in green. Foxed and toned, nick to had of spine, wrappers separating towards head, staples rusty at rear. Else, internally tight and tidy. Still, a very good copy of an unusual booklet.
Dealer Notes
With a fascinating women at work section (pp. 52-92), written by alumni with a broad range of careers, including ‘She Writes for the Films!’ and ‘A Minion of the Law’ (with strict copyright instructions “By order of Scotland Yard”). A number of contributions came from prominent ex-pupils, such as the garden designer Madeline Agar, the first female prison governor Dr Selina Fox, sculptor Helen Fraser Rock (“First woman to gain Royal Academy prize for Sculpture”) and Scottish Unionist MP for Kinross and West Perthshire and anti-suffrage campaigner, the Duchess of Atholl.
