These two books are pristine hardbacks. The first book, Educating Women, has over 270 pages and is particularly interesting because it compares and contrasts the experiences of women in England and France.
This is a thoroughly researched, detailed and absorbing book and is a complete resource for understanding female education during the first 67 years of the 19th century.
This second hardback book also in pristine condition has around 300 pages and focuses on the lives of governesses in the 19th century. It is a revealing and poignant history of these largely forgotten young and not so young educated women for whom this was the only way they could keep body and soul together.
