Longstreet, Stephen. THE CRYSTAL GIRL. Chicago: Novel Library [a subsidiary of Avon Books] #34, 1949. First paperback edition. A reprint of the 1948 novel which finds Crystal Whitman (a modern day Becky Sharp) trying to gain money and power in Post-WW2 France, going man-by-man armed only with her wits and a bottle of Chanel #5. Apparently revised by the author for this edition (so stated}. A NEAR FINE copy with only a touch of wear to the extremities. The Novel Library series was an exceptionally vivid run of good girl art paperbacks between 1948-1950 and THE CRYSTAL GIRL was the 34th (of 46) in the series. A sharp example.
