The story: Awesome book and amazing woman! She hails from my town here, Churchville NY, and sadly the only remains of her homestead is a plaque on the street! Most know her as the "temperance lady" but her strength goes much deeper. This book is a treasure to women's history buffs! An Etsy enthusiast from Churchville.

The facts: You are viewing a very old book, Woman and Temperance, by Frances E. Willard. She was best known for heading the Women's Christian Temperance Union, 1879-1898; first dean of women, Northwestern University; appeared on a 1940 postage stamp; first woman represented in Statuary Hall, U.S. Capitol Building. Frances was an educator, temperance activist, reformer, suffragist, and speaker. The book measures 8" x 5-1/2" and has 648 pages. The book has illustrations and signatures in the front of the book most likely as a presentation book from one woman to another. There is damage to the binding from years of reading and some wear on the corners of the book.
