Blue-green cloth binding, with gold stamped title and "By the Author of 'Consecrated Women'" (no indication of author's name) and an array of gold and red ivy leaves on the cover (and spine), befits the claim, "elegantly bound in cloth, crown 8vo., 5s.," that appears variously in the advertisements for other books in this series by Mary Pryor Hack.

C.A. Salmond, "With a Facsimile of Mr. Gladstone's Letter to the Author," "Fourth Edition" and Mrs. Prentiss, The Author of "Stepping Heavenward." Her Life and Letters, by Rev. G. L. Prentiss, "Sixth Thousand. With Portrait and Illustrations," each of these pages filled with excerpts of periodical reviews. Book plate: Harriet K. Howell/ from/ Mary P. Hack./ 99 Trafalgar Street. Brighton." The first two lines appear handwritten in ink, the remaining printed in script. The chapter titles consist of the subject's name followed by birth and death dates and a phrase, all but one in quotation marks. Thus: I: Born 1738, died 1810; "Under his shadow"; II: Born (about) 1741, died 1807; "Found faithful"; III: Born 1791, died 1856; Working willingly with her hands; IV: Born 1797, died 1881; "Given to hospitality"; V: Born 1803, died 1845; "Called with a holy calling"; VI: Born 1808, died 1852; "Putting on the breastplate of faith and love"; VII: Born (probably about) 1820, died 1872; "Faithful and beloved"; VIII: Born 1831, died 1883; "Brought nigh." Each chapter preceded by a title page with epigraph (Havergal, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, etc.) and a second page with a block of prose, often from another person's biography. Reproduces correspondence and adds footnotes identifying correspondents or otherwise annotating.

Hall, Geoffrey F. Moths Round the Flame: Studies of Charmers and Intriguers. London: Methuen, 1935. New York: Holt, 1936; Books for Libraries, 1969.

Author identified on title page as "C.I.E., M.C./Author of 'The Guru's Ring.'" Notable Women of the Reign of Louis XIV. Contains illustrations of each of the women described, as well as a frontispiece of Louis XIV and the Palace at Versailles. Inside front cover opens to an old-style map of France ("Showing Places mentioned in 'Moths Round the Flame'"),including portions of England, Spain, and Italy with detail of Environs of Paris. Preface states that Hall has "not only made free use of other authors' researches, but has plagiarized them to such an extent that individual acknowledgment is impossible, and he has instead appended a list of works consulted in preference to encumbering the text with notes" (vii). Seems likely that much derives from Latour's series, with similar form of chapter titles, similar focus on French 17th c. Includes Genealogical Trees.

Hayward, Charles F. Women in the Mission Field. London and Glasgow: Collins' Clear-Type Press, n.d.

A copy loaned by the Portland Center Library (Oregon) is bound in red cloth with color image on cover of an Arab on a camel in decorative harness. Book plate of Western Evangelical Seminary and stamps in purple ink: "Adelphi Pl. Mission Hall, Portland. We Preach Christ crucified." Collins' 8vo Scripture Rewards are listed before frontispiece, fourteen books listed by price and a catalog number, thus: 33. Missionary Heroines and 23. Women in the Mission Field. This indicates that the book in hand was priced at one shilling and sixpence net. Frontispiece ("In Colour," as the title page announces) shows "An Eastern Scene," a European couple under a tent in a bazaar, the lady holding red flowers that have been chosen from baskets of flowers by the kneeling vendor, in beard and turban. The gentleman's attention is on the lady, the lady's attention seems fixed on another European woman in the background, in simple dress and bonnet. Perhaps this missionary woman is handing towels or tracts to a white-bearded man draped in white. The title page vignette also shows a colorful public scene in the "East" with apparent variety of racial types in a market. Some chapters also listed in a394 Hayward. Only Mrs. Cargill's narrative is without separate chapter headings in her 8-pp. narrative. The thick pages have no numbering.

Contains illustrations on occasional glossy pages, including both engravings and photographs, portraits and typical scenes (e.g. "Lady Missionaries Crossing an African River"), some suggesting a guide to Eastern travel. Inside front cover shows a bookplate printed (in Scotland) in gold, blue, and black, "AWARDED TO," with inscription added in ink: "Trinity Road Sunday School. [Awarded to] Dorothy Baldwin./ 2nd Class Prize/ Morning School/ 1930." Frontispiece "Mrs. Judson at the Prison Gates" shows a lady standing with a baby in arms and a hand to her eyes, leaning against heavy gates as a dark-skinned man, in hat and white cloth covering hip to knee, approaches along the street from a marketplace. Between the title page and table of contents is a page entitled "Noble Witnesses for the Faith of the Gospel," ten books published by Ritchie; a similar list of ten immediately follows table of contents: "Missionary Pioneers Who Carried the Light of the Gospel to Heathen Lands." The collective female biographies in these lists are: Heroines of the Faith (a rare book listed in WorldCat as published by Ritchie without author or clear date) and Two Missionary Heroines in Africa (Mary Slessor and Jeanie Gilchrist)--both of whom have monograph biographies listed under Boys' and Girls' Favourites; others are monographs of collections of men or men and women. The back of the book contains several glossy pages of advertisements for other books from "John Ritchie, Ltd., Publishers of Christian Literature." Sorted in declining order of price, from 3/6 to 4d. "Evangelical Wonder Books," "Good Books for Senior Scholars," "Select Gift and Reward Books," etc., a high proportion of biographies. Florence Nightingale biography listed under "Lives Worth Emulating" under "Pure and Good Reading" for two shillings; Frances Havergal also receives a monograph. Numerous paired biographies of male missionaries. As far as the titles indicate, the collective biographies of women are: Missionary Heroines of the Cross, Three Brave Women ("Mary Slessor, Mrs. Bird, etc."), Daughters from Afar, Missionary Heroines of India, Missionary Heroines of Many Lands, Heroines of the Cross in Foreign Lands. All the reading seems designed to rouse interest in life in remote countries with Evangelical mission as the motive--typified by the "Peeps at Many Lands" series.

There are illustrations at the beginning of each chapter, and sometimes within the chapters, apparently all signed "A A H," that is by Hilton herself. Most of the illustrations depict the respective saint for the chapter, but others relate to other elements of the narrative, such as the pictures of Beowulf and Grendel in the chapter on the Widow of Glastonbury. Running headers in Gothic script; typeface and general design (book is almost square) reminiscent of pre-Raphaelites and Morris. The final pages of the book contain a table of the saints with their respective feast days; notes on their shrines, emblems, and coat-of-arms; and a small glossary and bibliography.

See Strickland. “Advertisement: The materials for this Volume [sic], together with the extremely beautiful Portraits which it contains, having come into the hands of the Publisher, he has availed himself of the services of its present accomplished Editor, to revise, correct, and condense them, as well as to complete the series by the addtion of new Memoirs. No pains have been spared, to render it every way worthy of its national and highly interesting contents; and he feels that he may present it with confidence as one of the most perfect histories of our QUEENS which it is possible to comprise in a single volume.” Text and illustration in Cowden Clarke and Howitt almost entirely differ (anecdotes shared). Illustration of Queen Elizabeth in Strickland (1851) and Howitt (1851) completely differ, and the text of the abridged as well as vol. 4 1851 Strickland differs markedly from Howitt (latter full of censure). No illustration of Anne, subject of vol. 8 of Strickland (1851).

Hunter, Fannie McDowell, and Aaron Merritt Hills. Women Preachers. Dallas: Berachah, 1905.

NOT:=argument based on biblical interpretation and testimonials or autobiographies of "modern" women preachers. Title page: Mrs. Fannie McDowell Hunter, Fulton, Kentucky. Introduced by Dr. A. M. Hills, President Texas Holiness University, Peniel, Texas. Price 25 cents. Hunter's photograph with signature is the frontispiece. About 100-pp. book with portraits, no table of contents. A dedication "To My Beloved Sisters" indicates that women on blessed missions for the Master "often meet the opposition and scorn of their opponents." Hunter's preface (one page) affirms the biblical support for the right of women to preach. Hills in his one-page introduction approves the book as the best ("unanswerable") argument for the right of women to preach. "The author is herself a preacher of righteousness of extended usefulness, known in many States...May many saintly women be encouraged by the reading of these pages to be obedient to their Heavenly vision." Chapters tracing women preachers in Old and New Testaments and refuting the objections lead to chapter four, "Modern Women Preachers," which quickly moves to Methodists and the Salvation Army (43-45), mentioning specific women such as Mrs. Fletcher. In a paragraph, a former slave Amanda Smith is praised as a preacher (47). Hunter's autobiographical sketch (beginning p. 48) leads a series of first-person life narratives, usually beginning with a portrait, e.g. "My Call to Preach./Mrs. Eliza J. Rutherford. An Ordained Preacher of the Methodist Protestant Church." (65). These narratives sometimes appear as new chapters, but chapter five is Conclusion. "This may be well-called woman's age," Hunter writes after citing the example of Jane Addams. Women participate in almost all occupations. When they can vote, they will pass Prohibition. "Since woman owes her elevation to Christianity, may she show her appreication by rallying around the Cross" (96-98). The volume concludes with a verse debate between blaming Eve for the Fall and blaming Old Adam for misleading her, men for the crucifixion and praising women for their saving role.

Hurd-Mead (M.D.) is the former president of the Medical Women's National Association of the United States, and her portrait appears with others on p. 105, though she is not in the index. In the back of the book, before the index of names, several glossy pages provide portraits, some painted and some photographic, of many of the individual medical women mentioned in the text, with a few scenes in hospitals or images of buildings. After the table of contents, "Advance Subscribers" lists many women doctors, a few institutions (and Barnes & Noble) who ordered the 200 subscriptions needed to make the publication possible. Hurd-Mead clearly conducted extensive biographical research (some cited in footnotes).
