Auflage: First Edition
Quarto, flexible simulated textured leather, with blindstamped title and decoarated on the front of a spinning wheel blindstamped and shaded in pale blue and white, spine title in same mode. 185pp. plus advertisements. Very generously illustrated throughout with black and white photographs and sketches. Beyond the usual college yearbook photographs of students, clubs, athletics, drama etc. this whimsical yearbook of early twentieth century "young ladies" includes some very creative and remarkably well-executed "tableaux" on various lyrical subjects put together with humor as well as melodrama. There are half a dozen title pages in stiff green card with tipped on black and white sketches in similar vein and many sketches illustrating various pages of the book, including the icon of the Secret Freya Society ! These women were keeping themselves well entertained and the whole book has an inimitable nostalgic charm. Now Hollins University, this was the first chartered women's college in Virginia and is now considered one of the "Seven Sisters of the South". A very tight, clean, unmarked volume with crisp, bright pages. Some penned personal notes from fellow students limited to the last few blank pages, discreet owner signature on ffep, else unmarked and fine. FINE. Scarce particularly in this excellent coniditon.
