Notes on Nursing: What it is, and what it is not.
London: Harrison, [1860]. FIRST EDITION, slim octavo (21 x 14cm), pp. 79; [1], imprint; [1], blank. With printed advertisement endpapers on glazed yellow paper, listing 'Burke's Peerage, 1860' and 'The Foreign Office List for 1860'. Printed note on title-page '[The right of Translation is reserved]'. Publisher's stipple-grained dark brown limp cloth, gilt titles to upper board. Internally clean but for a news-clipping offprint to preface (three loose clippings from 'The Scotsman' dated 1899, 1907 and 1908, and one from the Daily Mail dated 1910, still present), spine frayed at joint else a particularly fresh copy of this notoriously fragile reference book. A terribly complex book, bibliographically speaking; Victor Skretkowicz, who studied over 100 copies and found a vast array of variations in binding, end-paper shade and type setting, as well as textual differences, concludes that 'given the considerable number of different states of each inner and outer form in every sheet, the idea of attempting to establish with certainty any specific `issue' of `Notes on Nursing' beyond the first is utterly impractical (The Library, March 1993).
