90 pp. Moderate rubbing on spine and corners, Text clean, no markings. With presentation card signed by the daughter of Anne Gannett laid in. Frontispiece portrait of Mrs. Gannett, with tissue protector intact. Foreword is by Guy Gannett, her husband, but the main text is by an unidentified person described only as a "young woman" who did not know Mrs. Gannett personally, presumably a staff writer at one of the Guy Gannett newspapers in Maine who, oddly, did not receive a byline or acknowledgement in this volume. The book is a memorial tribute, chronicling her involvement in women's suffrage, Republican politics, support of classical music, leadership of the National Federation of Music Clubs, and other charitable endeavors. There are a few personal passages about her relationship with her husband, but not much about her role as a mother. An interesting glimpse inside the Maine establishment and one of its more energetic grande dames.
