I am setting up a Display and need some books with Vintage Photos on the Cover or Dust Cover of a woman or women from the 1800's or early 1900's in period dress and hairdos. Prefer books with clear crisp photo images ( not illustrations ) of a single woman or women Biographies- Like Louisa May Alcott, Laura Ingram Wilder, Jane Austen, or Hymn Writers like Fanny Crosby or other women- Sufferage Women, Temperance Women. Presidents Wives from 1800's early 1900's when photos could be taken. Or let me know a book you have on your shelf.  I have found books on PBS and the image depicted is not always the image of the book on a member's book shelf. So if you have a book or any books that fit the description above that have excellent covers ( since they will be on display ) with lovely photos of vintage women.  Please PM me with info and Link to your book. THANK YOU!

I am not sure if this is what you are looking for:

I have this book but it is not on my shelf, I haven't had a chance to read it yet.  It is also an old book & ex-library book but still in decent shape.  I will look through my stacks & see if I have anything else.
