Title page: S. Baring-Gould, "Author of The Lives of the Saints. With sixteen full-page illustrations by F. Anger." New York Times obituary notes Rev. S. Baring-Gould's death on 5 June 1906 on shipboard at Port Elizabeth (dateline Cape Town, Cape Colony, June 4). An English clergyman (M.A. Oxford 1860) who traveled to and wrote about Iceland, he wrote many books on myth, church history, and medieval and regional histories. His version of Sister Dora is largely reprinted in Mabie and Stephens, Heroines Every Child Should Know. Viewing Sister Dora as a "double" of Saint Theresa with more practical achievement, Baring-Gould weighs the evidence for Sister Dora's sanctity in various accounts, including Lonsdale's biography.
