“Education is a discipline for life”

 

“The great uses of study to woman are to enable her to regulate her own mind, and to be instrumental to the good of others.”

 

Prior to 1792, very little had been printed on the importance of female education. In that year, Wollstonecraft published “Vindication of Women’s Rights” a work that was far beyond its time. Seven years later, Hannah More published “Strictures on the Modern System of Female Education”. According to Demers,

 “women [should] exert themselves, with a patriotism at once firm and feminine, for the general good ‘ and that ‘the chief end to be proposed, in cultivating the understandings of women, is to qualify them for the practical purposes of life’“.

These two works, in conjunction, ‘promoted fundamental changes in attitude…in which More envisions as a needed seriousness” (Demers, 85).

 

This book went through many editions within the first year of printing. This second edition is quite rare, and a very early edition of this landmark work.

He was in command of the first failed efforts to break the siege of Kut in 1916. From a military background, Aylmer was commissioned into the Indian Army, and immediately involved in fierce fighting on the north-west frontier. In a singularly heroic action, still in his twenties, he helped rescue Townshend’s garrison at Chitral, spearheading the relief column. For his valorous conduct he was awarded the Victoria Cross, and rapid promotion through the officer class.
