Among those listed are: authors Rosamond Lehmann and Philippa Pearce, suffragette Olive Beamish and Hertha Ayrton, an engineer, mathematician, physicist, inventor, and suffragette.
Very good condition for age, with a little scuffing to the upper board and some marginal foxing and marking but otherwise in strong readable condition.
