Octavo, 79,  (colophon) pages plus endpaper advertisements.
Flush-cut stippled cloth decorated in blind on the front and rear, with 'Notes on Nursing. By Florence Nightingale.' in gilt on the front, all edges lightly speckled red; cloth lightly marked, sunned on the spine, and rubbed at the extremities; an excellent copy.
The advertisements, for 'New Books, and New Editions' from the publisher, include the 1883 re-issue of Burke's General Armory of England. Nightingale's classic work, born out of her experiences in the Crimean War, first appeared in January 1860; by March of that year, it had sold some 15,000 copies. Copies have been recorded with advertisements dated as late as 1901.
