From the preface: "Since it seems to be the fashion of certain aithors to make their male characters as odious as possible and their femaile characters angels in comparison, being possessed of some sense of fairness, I have in this volume published a few records, to prove that vice and cruelty are not exclusively the attributes of the male sex." Tall 8vo, 286pp. A collection of bioggraphical sketches of some nasty ladies in history, including Gesina Gottfried, Madame de Brandenburg, Some American Bluebeards, Francesca Klein and other Present-Day Hungarian Bluebeards, et al. Illustrated with a frontispiece portrait of Joanna of Naples, as well as numerous black & white plates throughout. Hardcover, bound in original orange cloth with black lettering to spine. In very good condition. Firm binding and crisp, clean, pages. No signs of prior ownership. Minor shelf-wear to boards. A great copy of a very scarce book. N° de ref. de la librería 004681
