Florence Nightingale - How and Why Wonderbook

I came across this How and Why Wonder Book on Florence Nightingale in an Op shop recently which sits nicely with the two I already have - Rockets and Missiles, and The Human Body.... This book has some great pictures including the one below titled The Nursing Profession Today.....

Florence Nightingale (12 May, 1820 - 13 August, 1910) was an English Nurse who came to prominence in the Crimean War (1853-1856) and was know as "The Lady of the Lamp"due to her night rounds..she improved conditions for patients and her principles are still the basis of nursing today..
The care of the sick
The prevention of disease & 
The promotion of health
