About

This is a very good 1st edition (second issue) of this much sought after society journal which is still in a very good dust jacket though there are one or two short closed tears and small chips to extremities. This book comprises a unique panorama of the first years of the 20th century. It includes a collection of his beautiful photographs, amusing drawings and vivid articles, an important feature of the book are the 34 articles written on varied subjects and includes many witty biographies of film stars of that era. There are over 350 illustrations which not only illustrate the articles but also in themselves provide a magnificent view of life at that time. A scarce book and a real collectors item.
