Comments

¶ A charming story about Florence Nightingale's pet owl, written by her sister and published in a highly limited edition in about 1855 for private distribution. This second edition was edited by San Francisco bookseller David Magee and published on the 150 anniversary of Florence Nightingale's birth. ¶ A set of unbound sheets, purchased by a local San Francisco binder who never got around to binding it.
