A tight, quite attractive early printing ("Twentieth Thousand") of this most prudish and euphemistic of Victorian birds-and-bees manuals, with later chapters covering such topics as "Housekeeping and Home-Making," "Dress," "Gossip" and so on. Sex advice as comically vague as only the Victorians can make it!
