1 Dauphine, Claude, and Laura Aumont Smart Cookie
[New York] Elite Books, Inc. (c.1961) First Edition Hardcover Good in Good dj 
[front hinge starting to crack, otherwise a decent copy with only minor wear to extremities; jacket heavily edgeworn, short diagonal tear at upper left corner of front panel, a few other tiny tears and nicks, inverted-V-shaped wrinkle in front panel]. Trashy novel about "a girl who personifies sex," who flees from a rooming house in the slums of New York to Miami Beach to escape her sadistic stepfather and another abusive tenant, but soon discovers that "the exciting Playland of Glamour and Enchantment" is less glamorous and enchanting than she'd counted on. But not to worry, because she's determined "to stay there until she learns the real score and smartens up -- until she is finally transformed into a [wait for it....] SMART COOKIE!"

2 Dauphine, Claude, and Laura Aumont The Fatal Charm
(n.p.) Elite Books, Inc. (c.1961) 1st Edition (unstated) Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good dj 
[light wear at spine extremities, spine slightly turned, light browning to page edges; jacket shows some wear along top and bottom edges, minor chipping at top of spine, a couple of small closed tears]. "Beau Tremaine -- a most handsome and cynical, middle-aged Libertine -- when desperate for money for his many diversified pleasures, organizes a bunch of glamorous and exciting females and males into a so-called 'health resort,' but which was nothing else, in reality, but a good excuse for a sex camp in wild and turbulent Reno, Nevada -- the gambling mecca of the entire country." Lest you think this is less than Literature, folks, here's the dedication: "To the memory of EMILE ZOLA -- who was the innovator of the original school of NATURALISM, in general, and the direct and burning inspiration which led to the modern school of JOE WEISS -- of THREE-DIMENSIONAL NATURALISM, in particular!" (What? You say you missed the Modern School of Three-Dimensional Naturalism, as embodied in the oeuvre of Mr. Weiss? Were you just not paying attention?)
