It tells of her temptations, and how she falls a prey to the vices and lechery of an old roue”.
Crown 8vo (19cm). [iv],9-116pp. Original pictiorial stapled wrappers; faint wear at foot; faint creasing; tiny nick to lower wrapper; staples a little rusted, but overall still a very good copy. Just two copies (British Library and Trinity College, Dublin) located in major libraries worldwide.
