NOTES On NURSING For The LABOURING CLASSES.; Price Sixpence.

London: Harrison & Sons, 59, Pall Mall. 1885. 'Sixth-Third Thousand'. Cf. Bishop & Goldie 6. 114, [2] pp. Publisher advert last 2 pages. 6-1/2" x 4-1/8" [16.5 cm x 10.5 cm]. Original publisher's printed pale green paper wrappers. General wear & soiling to covers, with backstrip slightly sun-tanned. Age-toning to extremities. Paper chipping to spine ends. Withal, a VG copy. Item #34643.3

An uncommon edition of Nightingale's classic work; OCLC reports no holding of this 1885 edition. We find no copies returned on a COPAC search.

NB. Bishop & Goldie state, in their entry for this work, that the 3 chapters that conclude this 1885 edition, "Convalescence, What is a Nurse, and Minding Baby" were not introduced until the 1914 "War Time" edition... obviously, they are in error.

Price: $750.00
