Baden-Powell, who based his program on the skills he had learned as a scout in the military, wrote a number of guidebooks for the organization, many of which were illustrated by paintings by Baden-Powell, who was an accomplished artist. In 1911, he helped his sister, Agnes, found the Girl Guides, a similar organization for girls. Vertical fold crosses signature. Mounting remnants on verso show through lightly.
