First in this, paperback, edition. Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “From Queen Victoria’s disgust at childbearing and Isabella Bird Bishop’s conquest of the Rockies, to an eight-year-old watercress-seller’s matter-of-fact description of her very adult world, this anthology is a stunning collective portrait of women in nineteenth-century England. It powerfully illustrates the stereotypes that bound them, the limits they struggled against and the issues that absorbed them, to give us women’s true experiences both personal and political.”
