Product description

(by Isabella Lilias Trotter 1853-1928) Artist and Protestant missionary to Algeria. This is her personal and affectionate story of Algeria.
Brown cloth, gilt titles, spine very badly worn and split, corners worn, but contents good and sound.
Ffep bears bookplate and traces of writing. Very light foxing.
With 16 colour plates taken from the author's watercolours.

Isabella Lilias Trotter was born into a wealthy family and painted from an early age. John Ruskin was a great friend and admirer, and considered her a 'rare talent'. However she gave up an artistic career to found Christian missions in Algeria, working hard for many years in impossible circumstances to convert Algerian women to Christ.
Her religious and mystical writings were very popular in her time. This book is not one of those, instead gives a picture of Algerian life and culture as she observed it.
A scarce item.
