Sunday or a Working Girl's Lament

Monaco: Imprimerie A Chène. 1930.

Limited edition, number 92 of 200 printed on velin supérieur signed by the author. 244x157mm. 74 leaves. Quarter green cloth, white paper covered boards, colour illustration to centre of upper cover. Some marking and soiling to covers and scuffing to corners and edges of boards. Some foxing but otherwise a very good copy. Text printed in black, blue, red and green on recto only (verso blank), four illustrations. Daisy Fellowes was an heiress to the Singer Sewing Machine. Rich, beautiful, funny and clever she was a fashion muse, the editor of Harper's Bazaar and an inventive writer as is evident in this charming work with its witty and quasi-modernist wordplay. The only thing at which she appears to have failed was an attempt to seduce Winston Churchill.
