First edition, first impression of this nutrition manual. Leonora (1889–1960) was a novelist and journalist, who wrote The Woman in the Little House (1922), a documentary study of working women’s lives, which highlighted the daily struggles against poverty of women in the inner-city slums. She also wrote regularly for socialist publications such as George Lansbury’s Labour Leader and the Daily Herald, edited the women’s page in The Miner, and became a popular columnist in Woman’s Own: her column in the inaugural issue of Woman’s Own (15 October 1932) introduced her as ‘the woman who understands’. From the publisher’s archive.

Octavo. Original blue boards, spine lettered black. With the dust jacket. Boards slightly bowed; an excellent copy in the sunned jacket.
