Mrs. Manning's Wards., Baldwin, May.
2 Baldwin, May. Mrs. Manning's Wards.
London, England W. & R. Chambers Hard Cover Very Good with no dust jacket Illustrated by Gordon Browne 
12mo - 18.5 x 13 cm.; 332 pp. Illustrated with six full page black and white lithographic plates by Gordon Browne. Olive green cloth with black lettering and decorations on spine and front board. Baldwin wrote turn of the century stories for young women and girls and some of her stories were serialized in periodicals such as "Chamber's Journal" (one that I know of, there are probably others). They can be referred to as the "schoolgirl" genre of young people's fiction that was often looked down upon but sold widely to the reading public. The regular Chamber's editions were not expensively produced and have not withstood the test of time and usage very well. This copy is overall very good with minor foxing to the text block edges and the head edge is dust soiled. A good presentation with a clear and removable archival cover having been fitted. No date given but circa 1910 to 1920. 8748
