New York: Elizabeth Ann Guild Inc., 1930. One of the most famous "tell-alls" of the Twentieth century, recounting the author's affair with President Warren G. Harding and the existence of an unacknowledged daughter. A disclaimer page notes that the first printing and its plates were seized by the Society for the Suppression of Vice; more likely, they were more interested in just suppressing the story. Denials by Harding's family were disproved only recently through genetic testing. This is a Very Good (Minus) copy, an uncommon title despite its fame. Black decorative cloth binding, with fancy gilt lettering and ruling on the front cover and spine. Clean text; 399 pages; illustrated with many photographs. Previous-owner inscription (1931) on the FFEP. Mildly bumped, with the gilt somewhat dulled. Unfortunately, both hinges are cracked, so the book is in need of reinforcement. The dustjacket is complete, showing wear and chipping at the margins; in an archival plastic protector.. First Thus. Decorative Cloth. Very Good (Minus)/Very Good (Minus). 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Dust jacket present. First Edition.
