Please don't misunderstand us when we say that Mr. Searle is what used to be called "a bit of a one for the ladies". This book might indeed have been described as an "lllustrated Guide to the Fairer Sex", but we think you will enjoy it best as a further collection of this brilliant young artist's highly amusing, and largely acidulous, drawings. Once again pride (or infamy) of place is given to the girls of St. Trinian's, but the field is large and the artist takes aim at all kinds and conditions of women, stopping at most stations between the cradle and a well-earned widowhood. Although the ladies dominate the scene, there are a considerable number of masculine sidelights. Man the hunter, for instance, may be seen up to no good; man the schoolboy early learns his place in the world; whilst Mr. Searle's superbly imperturbable Englishman is always around. And to put you in the mood for the proper enjoyment of these diverse humours, there is the rare delight of a letter from Sir Max Beerbohm. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 96 pages.
