8vo, pp. 195. Bound in faded green cloth, binding little tender. Illustrated with 2 photos. TEG, a very god tight clean copy. Laid in is a 2 page, typed, fund raising letter to Mr. and Mrs Robert C. Sprague of Williamstown, Massachusetts, signed in pencil. The story of Helen Keller and her teacher Anne Macy's struggle to teach Keller, a blind, deaf person to communicate has been well chronicled in literature. Of equal interest is the active life of a reformer that Keller led after she learned to communicate. This is a collection of essays and a poem.
