Description: "The nurses and hospitals of the whole world owe a great debt to Florence Nightingale, one of the greatest Englishwomen who ever lived. Her name will always be associated with the Crimean War, but it was her patient work during a very long life which made our hospitals what they are to-day. This is her story."
Excellent full-page colour paintings appear on each facing page.
Glazed pictorial boards are in excellent condition. Apart from the lightest of creasing to the first few pages, the book is effectively as new.
Only the year of copyright (1959) has been given, but the general appearance of the book, alongside the presence of an ISBN-13, strongly suggests that this copy was printed in c.1982
