(6 1/2 x 4 1/4"). IV, 94pp, 1 leaf (Advertisement). Original blind-stamped cloth, with blind-stamped lettering on front cover. This delightful handbook for Ladies' maids focuses on how to preserve a healthy skin and how to treat it in case of sunburn, skin cracks, freckles, redness of the face, pimples, acne, black specks, burns and scalds. The second part of the book deals with hair-dressing, and contains 8 in-text figs, and 8 full-page plates showing the following coiffures: The Alexandra, the Solferino, the Trellis coiffure, the Charlemagne, the Norma, the Cockade, the Cleopatra, and the Catalani. This book contains a distinctly anti-semitic sentence on page 46: "By the way, there can be no greater mistake than to buy rouge sold by any of the thousand and two titles which cozening Jewesses and miserable renovatresses bestow upon it." Minor shelf wear. Spine slightly sunned. Front hinge slightly starting. Offsetting to fly leaf. Binding in overall good+, interior in good+ to very good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 39605
