Mary Slessor Cuthbert Mcevoy Torch-bearer Calabar Nigeria Christian Biography For Sale
Mary Slessor A short biography of the Scottish missionary to Nigeria, Mary Slessor of Calabar.Written in "inspirational" style, and published by The Carey Press for the Baptist Missionary Society. I am not sure of the exact date of publication, but there is a date hand-written on the flyleaf - this is 1930.This date looks about right, judging by the style - plenteous references to "savages", and dark hints of sexual depravity and violence (though NOT on the part of our noble heroine Mary Slessor, of course!). This is a small book, with a soft cover.It measures about 7" x 5" (19 cm x 12 cm).Condition:Good, readable condition.The pages and photograph pages are clean and tidy, though a few are dog-eared.Slight discolouration through age, and age spots on the edges of the pages.No dust jacket.The soft covers are stained, worn and with age spots.The cover is ripped at the spine (bottom two inches).Please see photographs. ******
