Description

Simultaneously witty, scathing, and anecdotal, Florence Nightingale's ""Notes on Nursing"" is perhaps the most influential work on nursing throughout the world. For years, the varying editions of this seminal work have puzzled scholars as well as readers. Now, Dr. Skretkowicz sets the historical record straight.

This volume includes the annotated and unabridged July 1860 edition [the ""Library Standard Edition""] of Notes on Nursing, the 1868 edition of Notes on Nursing [for the Labouring Classes], and additional manuscripts written by Nightingale in 1875 that she was never able to publish.

The new edition presents Nightingale's unabridged edition in its original form for the very first time since its publication in July 1860. Together with the 1868 edition and the 1875 manuscripts, the book provides today's educated readership with the nearest possible ""authoritative, complete, and unexpurgated"" version of ""one of the best selling, globally circulated texts of the nineteenth century.""
