Aphra Behn by V. Sackville-West. 1927 Gerald Howe, first edition, 92 pages. Part of the Representative Women series edited by Francis Birrell: "The series will give in biographical form a picture of female accomplishment throughout the ages."

Sackville-West was a British novelist and biographer, companion and lover to Virginia Woolf, and accomplished gardener.
