[ex-rental library book with attendant stamping on front pastedown and ffep, rear hinge cracked; jacket trimmed a little along top and bottom edges, backed with brown paper and glued down at flaps, with some staining and soiling to rear panel, wrinkling and rubbing to front panel, a couple of small tears and associated creasing at bottom of front panel]. The most notorious man-chaser of her day dips into her "intimate diary" to tell her story "from the time she ran away from home to join a vaudeville bicycle performer's act to her latest affairs with Lord Northesk and other European noblemen. At bottom hers is the story of a girl who ran away from home in a blind search for happiness, a girl who wanted silk chemises and pretty gowns, good times and plenty of love. All that distinguishes her from less celebrated girls with the same desires is her superior technique in attainment." The rear panel of the uncommon dust jacket features her ten-point definition of the perfect husband, e.g.: "1. He must be rich but have a very competent secretary so that he will not have to pay too much attention to business. 8. He must not stop telling me I am beautiful just because I am his wife."
