Yes, there is still a lot of interest in her, and as Archivist I have been asked to supply her portrait on several occasions. We still have the telescope she used for her sunspot observations: well, the tube at least. The BAA library archive does not have any copy of the 1880s books she wrote under a pseudonym, about her eclipse expeditions, but I gather they can now be ordered as reprint editions. We must also remember that she was Director of the Solar Section of the Liverpool AS before 1890. It would be interesting to hear a little more about her activities in the LAS.
