New York: A.T. De La Mare Company, Inc., 1922. Hardcover. Reprint of the 1917 original, in very good shape. 176p. plus ads, coated semi-alkaline paperstock throughout with plenteous b&w photography throughout (indifferently reproduced) and a diagram of the "ideal sun parlor." Hardbound in 7.5x5 inch green cloth boards spine-titled in bright gilt, a colorized photograph laid down on the front cover. This photo is a little edgeworn as are extremities of the cloth casing, the paperstock very faintly (and evenly) toned, a sound, clean, unmarked copy. The sun room is indeed impressive, a restorative atmosphere in which to sip tea, do household accounts, and generally be gladdened that one has the wealth for all this.
