In good condition, here is an antique copy of Missionary Heroines in Many Lands: True Stories of the Intrepid Bravery and Patient Endurance of Missionaries in the Encounters With Uncivilised Man, Wild Beasts and the Forces of Nature in Many Parts of the World. By EC Dawson. Undated but research shows it would have been published in 1912 by Seeley, Service & Co., London. In charming Art Nouveau boards and with eight black and white plates.

Inside the pages are clean and tightly bound. With tanning and spotting to the closed outside edges. Has a prize bookplate on the front paste down dated 1931 (see photos), but no other writing or markings of previous ownership. Has a stain on the inside top corner of the rear paste down, but only to the surface inside and not to the outside of the book (see final close-up photo). All eight black and white plates are present as called for.

Light brown cloth covered boards have delightful Art Nouveau decoration in red and dark blue to the front and spine. All in super order with no real condition points to note all.

Your vintage copy of Missionary Heroines in Many Lands will be wrapped with care in tissue and ribbon* and sent well packaged. I am always happy to add a gift card with a message to the parcel.

H 21 cm X 13.5 cm, 169 pages, 0.39 kg. I dispatch worldwide daily from the UK. (There are just a very few countries which I am unable to ship to).

* If you would prefer for your book not to be decoratively wrapped but sent simply in the full protective packaging please add a note to the order.
