Jane Maria Strachey, known in her time as Lady Strachey or Mrs Richard Strachey, after her husband Lieutenant General Sir Richard Strachey, was a remarkable woman. During her life she advocated for women's right to vote, involving her children in campaigning, and she remained a vocal advocate of women's rights until her death in 1928. She also published two children's books, and this is the second. Full of whimsical, imaginative lyric poetry, it is reminiscent of Wilde's stories for his children, and is beautifully illustrated throughout. 92 pages. Soiling to covers, especially along top edges. Slight bumping of outside corners of boards. Small cursive owners name written on endpaper reverso. Occasional light foxing and finger soil marks. Illustrator: G. P. Jacomb Hood. Shipped Weight: .34 kilos.
