Book Catalogue – International Women's Day
To coincide with International Women’s Day, March 8th 2018, we are pleased to present a catalogue of books covering a vast array of topics ranging from politics through to travel pioneers. As you can imagine, the pool of material to choose from is intimidatingly large and so we’ve selected those items we feel display some particular curiosity of provenance or quirk of character, with a few classics thrown in for good measure.
