English publisher and feminist.

Faithfull became a lecturer and writer, and was interested in work for women. In 1860 she founded a printing establishment in London, at 9 Great Coram Street, where only women were employed. In May, 1863, she started the Victoria Magazine in London, and subsequently was given in the London Directories as "stationer, printer and publisher to Her Majesty." Still later she appeared on the lecture platform, and on September 26, 1872, she set off on a lecture tour to America for the first time, remaining until 1873. She made two other visits to this country, and her "Three Visits to America" was published in Edinburgh and New York in 1884. Her first novel, "Change Upon Change: A Love Story," was published in London in 1868, and was revised by Miss Faithfull and reprinted by Beadle, under the title "A Reed Shaken with the Wind," in 1873.

This is a very fine signature in black ink, cut from the bottom of a letter on a piece measuring 4" x 2.75". In very good condition.
