The Scholar's Daughter

£24.99

Product description

Published in 1906 by Methuen & Co.

A charming story written in very easy to read style.

The author, Beatrice Harraden (1864–1936) was a British writer and suffragette. Harraden involved herself with the women's rights movement, joining the Women's Social and Political Union, the Women Writers' Suffrage League and Women’s Tax Resistance League and publishing her work in the suffragette paper Votes for Women. This involvement is reflected in much of her fiction. She also involved herself as a reader for the Oxford English Dictionary, and this is reflected in her book The Scholar’s Daughter being is set among lexicographers.

There is an inscription on the frontispiece reading: 'D Stowe, Adderbury'. The front cover has a 'Boots Circulating library' stamp.

Clearly a well read favourite there is some wear and rubbing on the covers and some pages have slight foxing. Pages are untrimmed. Overall the bindings are secure and all pages are in a good readable condition.
