"IF THE SUBJECT LAUGHS HEARTILY AT THE MERE SOUND OF THE WORD 'ETCHINGS' YOU CAN MAKE A QUICK SHIFT TO LITHOGRAPHS, WATERCOLORS, OR VAN GOGH REPRODUCTIONS": FIRST EDITION OF HANLEY'S LET'S MAKE MARY, 1937

HANLEY, Jack. Let's Make Mary. Being a Gentleman's Guide to Scientific Seduction in Eight Easy Lessons. New York: Phoenix, (1937). Slim octavo, original black-stamped pictorial green cloth. $250.

First edition of this vintage seduction guide.

Written by a leading 1930s sleaze/pulp writer, this decidedly retrograde guide to seduction offers techniques and suggestions including plying a woman with alcohol; using blackmail or false promises; practicing figurative mustache-twirling and pursuing a woman like a movie villain; and inviting a woman to see one's etchings.

About-fine condition.
