As we celebrate the 100 years since women in Great Britain were granted the right to vote, albeit on a limited basis (full suffrage was not granted until 1928), an archive collection of leaflets, broadsides and letters relating to the suffragettes and a memoriam for Emily Davidson (1913) (BK19/528a) is being offered for sale by Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood in the forthcoming Antiquarian Book Auction on 14th March 2018, with an estimate of £250-£500.

His is an exciting factual account of Sir Winston Churchill's time in the Sudan serving under Lord Kitchener during the campaign against the Mahdi Army. The inscription reads 'To Sir James Stevenson from Winston S Churchill, Christmas 1919'. Sir James Stevenson worked as a personal adviser to Churchill.
