A Girl with Money

£14.99

Product description

This is one of the rarer titles by this prolific author, who wrote more than 100 novels and short stories - the Barbara Cartland of her age! The main story, written in the first person, tells of the 'up-and-down' journey of the heroine from an unmarried to a married state. A second tale (of just 5 chapters) is also included in the book, telling much the same story in fewer words. Early examples of what is now called 'chick-lit'...

Florence Warden (nee Florence Alice Price, Mrs G E James) (1857-1929) was born in Hanworth and educated in Brighton and in France. From 1880 to 1885 she was an actress and in 1885 played in "House on the Marsh", a play based on her own book of 1882. After 1900 her she received little money from her work and her final years were lived in reduced circumstances.

Our book is in good condition for its 100 years, bound in textured green cloth which is somewhat worn at the edges and angles as well as on the flat surfaces; the title etc are in black lettering on the front and spine. All corners are bumped (but not frankly damaged), and there is a little shelf wear to top & bottom of the spine. Inside, the binding is generally firm with no loose pages (slight weakness at pp.128/9), and there are no textual markings. There is, however, light foxing throughout, and some browning of the page edges. A rather charming colour frontispiece appears to be signed 'Davis', though the artist is not credited on the title page. Its tissue guard is in place, but very browned, and slightly torn and creased at the bottom spine angle. A rare title by this author.
