What Our Customers Say...
Illustrated, Pleasing Copy, Publishers' Original Binding
Amy Carmichael is renowned to this day for her attempts to save girls and young women from forced prostitution in India, founding the 'Dohnavur Fellowship' in 1901 and working tirelessly to provide shelter and protection for those in need. Reportedly being very respectful of the Indian culture, Carmichael was also known for dressing herself in Indian clothes and dying her skin with dark coffee. She produced copious works on her missionary work throughout the later stages of her life, and inspired many others to pursue missionary work. This is an 'Octavo Edition' copy, published in July 1912, Collated, complete with fifty half-tone illustrations 'from photos specially taken for this work'. The photographs in this work, bar two, were taken by the renowned photographer Albert Thomas Watson Penn of Ootacamund. Penn travelled to 'Ooty' at the age of sixteen and set up a photography firm, producing numerous photographs that provide a fascinating visual record of the social history of the Nilgiris District. With publisher's advertisements to the rear of the text.
