(no dust jacket) [moderately worn copy, hinges a little weak but intact, a number of scratch marks on front cover, light bumping at several corners, vintage bookseller's label (Des Forges Books De Luxe, Milwaukee) on rear pastedown, remnants of old price sticker on rear endpaper]. Novel with an art-world background, the story "enriched by a well-sketched scene that shifts from Kansas City to New York to Paris, and involves dealers, collectors, artists, galleries and paintings, with a wealth of incidental and most astute comment on modern art." The author was involved with the National Woman's Party during the campaign for women's suffrage; as far as her art-world bona fides were concerned, she later founded the New Gallery Art Club, which thrived for a few years in the mid-1920s on New York's Madison Avenue. This self-described "strange novel" was apparently her only book.
