Wonderful colour illustrations. "...She had been brought up to believe that to read a novel before luncheon was one of the gravest sins..." At the turn of the century, thousands of women must have been prepared to sin, for series like Chatto & Windus' Sixpenny novels were reaching an ever widening public, and their covers were designed to intrigue, to persuade and to entice the reader into committing that sin over and over again. These covers have been chosen from books first published between 1880 and 1914, and includes some of the marvellous Pears advertisements on their backs. Brief texts on each are included in this nostalgic journey. (496) ; 4to 11" - 13" tall
