Portrait of a Con Man: A Game Some People Play, Mendoza, Fay
2 Mendoza, Fay Portrait of a Con Man: A Game Some People Play
New York Vantage Press (c.1975) 0-533-01869-2 / 9780533018697 First Edition Hardcover Fine in Very Good+ dj 
[nice tight clean book; jacket shows a little rubbing/scuffing along bottom edge of front panel, one small tear there as well, spine a bit faded]. "Portrait of a Conned Woman" might be a better title for this "chronicle of one woman's experience--of an unsuspecting woman who was 'taken,' heart and pocketbook, by a con man working, albeit just barely, within the law--and how her programming in a rigidly defined sex role made her the perfect victim, a pushover just waiting to be fleeced." Most of the book takes the form of a long letter from the author to her lawyer, in a diary-like format, giving a detailed account of her victimization at the hands of "C.B." Despite the declaration on the jacket that the author "is not a part of the Women's Lib movement," the book fairly bubbles over with her rage at women's oppression by men. As well it should!

Women Over Forty, Trent, Sarah
3 Trent, Sarah Women Over Forty
New York The Macaulay Company (c.1934) First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ 
(no dust jacket) [solid square copy, minor shelfwear, spine cloth sunned, one tiny dark stain on spine, small bookseller's label (McClelland & Co., Columbus, Ohio) on front pastedown; minor pencil lining in text, a couple of turned-down page corners]. From the Foreword by Dr. Charles Francis Potter, founder of The First Humanist Society of New York: "If ever a book was sorely needed, this one is. My experience as a preacher has revealed to me the appalling number of unhappy women over forty. Some are simply at a loss what to do with themselves when their children need them no longer. Others are distraught, panicky, morbid and even desperate. To all such women, in fact to all women, [the author], from her own experience and her store of common sense, offers confidential advice of a valuable type. She understands women." (My favorite chapter title: "Modern Nerves.")
