[a little wear to book at lower extremities, slight bumping to top of spine, light dust-soiling and age-toning to edges of text block, attractive vintage bookplate on 2nd ffep, paper-clip marks at top of ffep and 2nd ffep, contemporary newspaper clipping about author affixed to copyright page and facing page; jacket heavily edgeworn, slight paper loss at top corners and top of spine, tiny puncture hole mid-spine, diagonal scrape on front panel]. Think of yourself as a swinging single, footloose and fancy free? Think again, my friend -- you're just not seeing your shackles. "The slaves of freedom are the people who can but won't marry -- the entirely 'moral' people, both men and women, who think that they can get more out of life by remaining single. ... There is a type of woman who fears marriage as she would fear a gaol sentence. She educates herself for pleasure. She regards love as a game." But fortunately, this book seems to assure us, there's still hope for such a dame: this book "is a romance of an eleventh hour rescue." The jacket and the lovely endpaper illustrations are both by Willy Pogany, and there are a handful of newspaper clippings about the author laid in at the back of the book.
