Original illustrated wrappers. Lithograph. Name and inscription on cover. A very good set. Roy. 8vo. (24 x 17 cm). In Turkish (Modern). 4 books set: (8 p.; 8 p.; 8 p.; 8 p.), richly color ills. Probably all books of the set published in 1964 altogether.

First and only edition of this extremely rare set published for propaganda on "an ideal women's image" in the Republican Turkey period after the 1960 Coup d'Etat.

In addition to the early period posters and brochures printed for the purpose of propaganda for women to join the defense ranks during the War of Independence, (1919-1922), the Ministry of Education continued to publish books to determine the social roles of Turkish women after the proclamation of the Republic. In the Republican era, the propaganda style on women was carried out with such books titled "How to raise children, How to be a good housewife, etc.". This set is one of the book sets including four books titled i.e. Children of Fatma, Birth preparation of Fatma, When Fatma's child was born, and How Fatma feeds her child. "Fatma" character symbolizes in this book series the idealized Turkish woman according to the social norms of that period.
