Ghilchik, Margaret.
The Fellowship of Women: Two Hundred Surgical Lives
(Smith-Gordon & Co Ltd, 2011). The Fellowship of Women recounts the struggle of women to be accepted as surgical Fellows of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. In describing the professional careers and private lives of the first two hundred women to become Fellows from 1911 to 1970 - their practice continuing into that of their successors on into the present - Margaret Ghilchik, herself one of the number, adds a dimension to the social and medical history of the period and to the inspiring story of women's emancipation in the face of male surgeon's obstinacy. The author emphasizes the effect of the World Wars, when the role of women as surgeons could not be checked, but suggests that in modern times the numbers of women Fellows may have been less than expected. Paperback. New book, fine. xiv + 323pp. Order No. NSBK-C15241

Black, Clementina.
A New Way of Housekeeping:
(W. Collins, 1st edition, 1918). Rare first edition copy of this ground-breaking work. For the collector. Women employed in housekeeping; changes in domestic standards; why not be servantless?; the distaste for domestic service; labour-making houses; domestic federations; reconstructed domestic service; the motor as emancipator; waste of labour; women who do domestic work without aptitude or satisfaction; service of women needed by the country. Clementina Black urges a reorganisation of household duties, in order to free women from domestic drudgery. In her utopian vision of 'co-operative housekeeping', women would be released from the wasted effort of housework and made available for the labour market, which was now so very depleted of men after the Great War. She criticises the 'stupidity' of 'labour-making houses', and questions the continuing validity of the employment of domestic servants in the modern age. Her solution is to propose the formation of 'domestic federations'. These would represent committees of householders who would collectively manage their domestic arrangements in a centre 'fitted up with store places, kitchens, dining-rooms, offices, and lodgings for a nucleus of resident servants'. Hardback. Original cloth covered in small dark and white blotches, corners worn and spine split, text firm. A good working copy only. 132pp. Order No. NSBK-C4960
