About this Item

12mo - over 6" - 7" tall. 423p. errata page printed after ads for Miss Willard's books. All edges gilt. A nice association copy that in 1893 belonged to Elizabeth W. Andrew and Dr. Katherine C. Bushnell, who after completing her M.D. at Northwestern University, became a medical missionary to China and India, She was also a close associate of Frances E. Willard. When the World's W.C.T.U. first convened in 1891, they had just commissioned Mrs. [Elizabeth M.} Andrew and Dr. Kate Bushnell to visit the outposts of the Society, and they reported the result of their remarkable investigations on the open promotion of prostitution of the British troops in Inda. Her report led to Parliament led to the army's ban of the practice. A later bookplate from Los Angeles has Dr. Bushnell in association with Miss Grace M. Todd. Bookseller Inventory # 016319
