Octavo, 171pp., with drawings by Winifred Mury. A wonderfully practical text on how to get  along on less money -- written during the great depression and quite appropriate right now. Ten lively  chapters on coping with food, clothing, budget woes, housing and more, with, it seems, a basic message of "don't whine". There is an amusing chapter on "Can You Afford A Husband?" The author, an advocate for "bachelorettes" , was an assistant editor of Vogue. Very good in orchard cloth stamped gilt, top of spine just starting to fray.
