Notes

First edition, first impression, of Strachey's biography of Fawcett, written shortly after her death. Ray Strachey (1887-1940) was a feminist activist, politician and writer, involved in a number of Women's Labour societies. She worked closely with Fawcett throughout her life, and was secretary of the NUWWS from 1915 to 1920, during which time she helped "Fawcett to expel what she referred to as 'the poisonous pacifists' from the National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies" (ODNB). With a presentation label reading, "Presented by Miss Agnes Garrett in memory of her mother Dame Millicent Garrett Fawcett". Agnes (1845-1935) was Millicent's older sister, the printer potentially misidentifying their relationship. Millicent, and her daughter and only child, Phillipa, lived with Agnes after Henry Fawcett's death in 1884.
