About this Item

Hardcover first edition - First thus. The fourth title in the Hour-Glass Stories collection. An amusing and charming brief novel - Miss Philura is a plain spinster who attends a lecture of 'metaphysical philosophy' where she is told that she can have anything she wants if whe asks the all-encompassing 'Good' for it. She promptly asks 'Good' to make her pretty, give her beautiful clothes and provide a husband for her. Is it a satire or not? Miss Philura not only believed in her "affirmations," she took steps to change her life, including spending all of her limited funds on becoming new clothes. This edition is an attractive binding of cream cloth with an outer border of dark green surrounding a design of pink flowers and trailing vines. Double window outlined at top with elaborate lettering underneath it. The binding is designed and signed by Margaret Armstrong. 81 pp. plus 2 pp publisher's ads. Very near fine in a good only dustjacket (previous owner's name dated 1905; the very uncommon dust jacket has the usual toning and several chips and edgewear, but it protected the binding of the book admirably so it is as lovely and fresh as a new copy.) .
