The Collected Works of Florence Nightingale: The Complete Set comprises all the surviving writing of Florence Nightingale, featuring original material from over 150 archives and private collections worldwide. Known as the heroine of the Crimean War and the major founder of the modern profession of nursing, Florence Nightingale (1820-1910) is affirmed as a scholar, theorist, and social reformer of enormous scope and importance. This series demonstrates her astute use of the political process; reports on her extensive correspondence with royalty, viceroys, cabinet ministers, and international leaders; and contains a great deal of previously unpublished material—Florence Nightingale is revealed as so much more than the “lady with the lamp.” The Collected Works of Florence Nightingale is indispensable to scholars, and accessible and revealing to the general reader.
