LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

Hutchinson of London, publishers - ISBN:0091268400, 1977. hardcover, 5¾" x 8¾", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, & barcode. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. How did Dr James Miranda Barry manage to conceal her gender from the army for forty-six years? And why did she take on a man's role and a man's work? Only after the doctor's death in 1865 did the incredible truth come to light; this vivid and meticulous biography comes up with some astonishing answers. It was a masquerade conceived in an elite intellectual circle and an intense relationship with Lord Charles Somerset, Governor of the Cape Colony - one of the few to know her secret.
