Signed by both author and artist to the limitation page.

Light-hearted stories of a bawdy house and three girls that work there—Trixie, Jasmyne and Ophelia. The book is illustrated with 6 full page woodcuts, as well as tailpiece, title page and front cover.


Fair condition only. The boards are rubbed and a little grubby. The book lacks the endpapers and there is some wear to the hinges. The pages are tanned but the book remains readable and the woodcuts are rather stylish.
