26 2996 NIGHTINGALE, Florence, Martha Vicinus and Bea Nergaard, ed. Ever Yours, Florence Nightingale: Selected Letters
Hardcover Harvard University Press: Cambridge, MA; 1990; First US Edition Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust wrapper  
461 pages; Burgundy cloth boards clean and bright, bumped spine ends; book looks unread. Dust wrapper, not price clipped, faintly rubbed and edgeworn with one short closed tear. A very nice copy. ; 'For many, Florence Nightingale is the most famous woman of her day, second only perhaps to Queen Victoria. Celebrated and beloved by the public and her friends, considered an irritant by politicians and bureaucrats, the great reformer remains a figure of considerable controversy. In this full 'life in letters' we see her at first hand. Martha Vicinus and Bea Nergaard weave together a narrative account and a selection of her letters in such a way as to create--in Nightingale's own words--a fascinating portrayal of the woman, her career, and her concerns.'

Almost There : The Onward Journey of a Dublin Woman, O'FAOLAIN, Nuala
27 6419 O'FAOLAIN, Nuala Almost There : The Onward Journey of a Dublin Woman
Hardcover; Ex-Library Riverhead Books: NY; 2003; First US Edition 275 pages Very Good in Very Good+ dust wrapper 
A nice ex-library copy with usual stamps and markings. Skinned areas on front and rear boards where dust wrapper was once attached to book. Unclipped dust wrapper, faintly edgeworn, has no library markings.; The author's life changed after the publication of her first memoir, 'Are You Somebody?' This memoir "begins her story from the moment her life began to change in all manner of ways-subtle, radical, predictable, and unforeseen. It is a provocative meditation on the 'crucible of middle age'-a time of life that forges the shape of the years to come, that clarifies and solidifies one's relationships to friends and lovers (past and present), family and self. It is also a story of good fortune chasing out bad-of an accidental harvest of happiness.

'Almost There', like its predecessor, is a crystalline reflection of a singular character, utterly engaged in life. Intelligent, thoughtful, hilarious, fierce, moving, generous, and most of all, full of surprises."
