"The subject of woman, that is to say, the modern woman, with her varying instincts, pursuits, and peculiarities alone would fill many large volumes. I feel bound, therefore, to confine myself to the discussion of one particular side of her nature, one for which personally I have most sympathy, and one which perhaps can best be described by the epithet 'womanly.'"
Originally published in 1902, this extremely rare volume offers a remarkable snapshot of the fashionable Edwardian woman. The author — fashion editor for The Lady's Realm, a monthly London magazine for more "enlightened" readers — offers rich counsel on how to cultivate charm and social standing through the subtle art of dress.
Illustrated fashion tips feature a wide range of advice on corsets, petticoats, hats, jewelry, footwear, accessories, and more, with chapters on "The All-Important Question of Colour," "Hats Sublime and Ridiculous," "The Revival of Fashions of the Past," and "The Aggressiveness of the Smart Woman." A selection of vintage advertisements for London-area fashion shops is also included.

Reprint of the Grant Richards, London, 1902 edition.
