The book is illustrated with photographs. Ray Strachey (1887–1940) was a British politician, author and artist. She worked closely with Millicent Fawcett sharing her Liberal feminist values and opposing any attempt to integrate the suffrage movement with the Labour Party.
A good copy with some wear. There is some foxing to the spine, and light bumping to the corners. Internally the binding is secure, the pages are light foxed to the the edges and a little to the margins. The book is in strong readable condition.
