9781771120005: Collected Works of Florence Nightingale: The Complete Set

The Collected Works of Florence Nightingale: The Complete Set comprises all the surviving writing of Florence Nightingale, featuring original material from over 150 archives and private collections worldwide. Known as the heroine of the Crimean War and the major founder of the modern profession of nursing, Florence Nightingale (1820-1910) is affirmed as a scholar, theorist, and social reformer of enormous scope and importance. This series demonstrates her astute use of the political process; reports on her extensive correspondence with royalty, viceroys, cabinet ministers, and international leaders; and contains a great deal of previously unpublished material―Florence Nightingale is revealed as so much more than the “lady with the lamp.” The Collected Works of Florence Nightingale is indispensable to scholars, and accessible and revealing to the general reader.

Review:

“This series is an essential addition to any serious nursing history collection.”

(Nursing Standard)

"This magnificent and devoted effort should be in every major research library or any library with collections on the changing role of women. ... Highly Recommended."

(V.L. Bullough CHOICE)

“The Collected Works will allow us to see for the first time the full complexity of this extraordinary and multifacted woman. It will be a tool of enormous value not only to Nightingale scholars and biographers, but also to historians of a wide variety of aspects of Victorian society: war, the army, public health nursing, religion, India, women’s issues and so on.”

(Mark Bostridge Times Literary Supplement)

“The details and explications of her views...are presented in carefully annotated and insightful editorial discussions....[These volumes] provide a more complete understanding of this complex woman, extending our appreciation of her much beyond the ‘The Lady with the Lamp’ legend.... The product of rigorous scholarship, of meticulous historical research—and a labour of love.” (Canadian Bulletin of Medical History)

“The Collected Works of Florence Nightingale is an extremely ambitious project that is a great service to scholarship. Every general academic library should own the complete set. It pulls together material that has been hitherto diffused across more than 150 collections, some of them private ones, in places ranging from Germany to India and Japan, as well as numerous English-speaking countries.” (Timothy Larsen Books and Culture)

“[I]t is clear that this is an academic project of the highest importance and integrity. It will have an impact on the work of scholars far beyond the immediate field of health history. Nightingale’s interests were wide-ranging and her correspondence included some of the leading thinkers of her day....The editing of these volumes is exemplary. Every reference has been followed up, including the identification of minor dramatis personae. Important personalities are accorded short biographies. On every page there are biblical allusions, which are faithfully identified. Each thematic section has an introductory essay and these are amplified by a full outline of Nightingale’s life and thought in volume 1. This project makes a major contribution to scholarship which will be of permanent value.” (Helen Mathers, University of Sheffield Ecclesiastical History)

“The Nightingale project ranks with both the Gladstone diaries and the Disraeli letters as a major undertaking in the field of Victorian-era scholarship, and therefore is of surpassing value to historians of the period, as well as to general readers.” (C. Brad Faught, Tyndale University College, Toronto Anglican and Episcopal History)
