1 Hughes, Jean Gordon Invincible Miss - The Adventures of Mary Kingsley
London Macmillan 1968 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Very Good Hilary Abrahams 
A Fine uninscribed copy with complete dustjacket which has a touch of wear. Mary Kingsley was a Victorian spinster whose upbringing had been totally domestic, yet on the death of her parents took ship and sailed to West Africa, reasoning that this was the most primitive part of the world. Wearing ankle length skirts and a small sealskin hat, she advanced into the jungle to study fetish (native religion) and collect fish specimens for the British Museum. Totally fearless, she walked among cannibals, canoed in crocodile infested swamps, shot rapids and became in 8 years an authority on west African Affairs. A biography of an exceptional Victorian woman beautifully illustrated by Hilary Abrahams. 
Price: 7.00 GBP
