MY OWN SCHOOLDAYS, Brazil Angela
2 Brazil Angela MY OWN SCHOOLDAYS
Blackie & Son Limited Hard Cover Good Good/Fair in Protective Cover 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
Photos tell the story, dj has a red drink splash (what other colour possible?), 1st page has a 1943 gift inscription inscription. Clean and well bound pp (spill is only to compressed edge & not inside, dj protected in plastic. "In offering the public this happy little autobiography, Miss Brazil yields to the urgent demand of numerous readers who regard her as not only a favourite authoress, but as a friend in the truest sense of the word. Here the friend reveals herself- the writer slips away into a pleasant background of home life from which the Miss Brazil of to-day quite naturally emerges" says a publishing blurb. General bio info > Angela Brazil (pronounced 'brazzle') wrote nearly fifty schoolgirl novels & was arguably the first author of girls' books to write her stories from the characters' point of view - and the first to write entertaining rather than instructional stories. She believed in writing musing and enjoyable tales in which the characters acted like normal human beings. Each story stands on its own, distinct from all the others. Her books are filled with well-delineated characters. Angela was born on November 30, 1868, in Preston, Lancashire, England. Her parents were quite well off & had 3 kids already. Angela's mother decided that Angela was going to be sent to a local private ladies school that encouraged pupils in art, literature and music. Following her father's death, Angela and her mother took to seeing much of Europe, & for a time Angela looked after her brother, Walter, & she spent her remaining years as Walter's housekeeper. Angela was extremely civic-minded and involved herself in many local charities and clubs.

In the Power of the Pygmies, Gilson, Captain Charles
5 Gilson, Captain Charles In the Power of the Pygmies
UK Humphrey Milford 1919 Hardcover Good to Very Good No Jacket 20.5cm Archibald Webb 
In the Power of the Pygmies by Captain Charles Gilson is over 500g to post & 284pp plus catalogue at rear. What is the theme of this book? I'm glad you asked >> Britain is a great nation that has the right to rule over others and when a nation disrespects or is dangerous to the British way of life they must be controlled. The Africans, or pygmies as Gilson calls them, were obviously not a civilization that was prominent in the English consciousness, but as Britain is a vast and powerful nation & therefore logically the pygmies are in need of European domination and governance. Herein (this story) is created for young audiences, a sensationalized, subversive depiction of African cultures, totally created by European powers. The Power Of The Pygmies is a blatant act of Orientalism with constant depictions of pygmies, which are presumed to be Africans, as savage, uncivilized monsters who pose a great threat to the cordial, English way of living. << so, now you have the gist of the thinking of the time & probably not just Gilson's. A few coloured plates, book has fox spotting scattered (blame the pygmies??), illustrated board cover.

10 Meade, L.T. Little Trouble the House
UK John F. Shaw & Co Hardcover Good-fair None issued 20.5cm 
Title: Little Trouble-The-House Not sure of pub date but pre-1899, School presentation copperplate inscription with that date. Meade gets 4 other mentions in the list of books available. BW steel engravings throught the book. Author info >>> L. T. Meade was the pseudonym of Elizabeth Thomasina Meade Smith (18541914), a prolific writer of girls' stories. She was born in Bandon, County Cork, Ireland, daughter of Rev. R. T. Meade, of Nohoval, County Cork. She later moved to London, where she married Alfred Toulmin Smith in September, 1879. She began writing at 17 and produced over 300 books in her lifetime, being so prolific that not less than eleven new titles under her byline appeared in the first few years after her death. She was primarily known for her books for young people, however, she also wrote "sentimental" and "sensational" stories, religious stories, historical novels, adventure, romances, and mysteries, including several with male co-authors. She was also the editor of a popular girls' magazine, Atalanta. She was a feminist and a member of the Pioneer Club. The book's original date was 1890, I can't say if this is a second or later, it just says "New edition" 144pp age-darkened, binding OK but not great.

Lovey Mary, Rice, Lice Hegan
13 Rice, Lice Hegan Lovey Mary
UK Hodder & Stoughton 1934 Hardcover Good No Jacket 18cm 
This book has been reprinted an amazing number of times since first run in 1903. 191 pp The story begins. Everything about Lovey Mary was a contradiction, from her hands and feet, which seemed to have been meant for a big girl, to her high ideals and aspirations, that ought to have belonged to an amiable one. The heroine of the story takes off from an institution & takes a little one with her review > I would give this book 10 stars if I possibly could! It is a wonderful book...It follows the life of Lovey Mary, a young woman who claims "it ain`t hard to be good when folks love you." She lives at "the home", where a young boy, Tommy, is entrusted to her care. When she finds out that Tommy`s "wicked" mother is coming to claim him, taking him away from Mary, she is quick to take action. I won`t spoil anything, but it is truely a delighful, humorous read. Good buy for a vintage copy.
