The Jewel [PROSTITUTION FICTION]. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1931.
First American Edition. Roese dustjacket art. Translated from the French by Pierre Loving. 'An innocent girl who comes to Paris and finds herself helpless before the sly invitations to crime and sin that press upon any girl alone in a large city. The episodes in the servants' quarters, in the streets, in the city ward for unmarried mothers, in the house of harlots, in the charity bureau for illegitimate children succeed each other with swiftness and certainty'. Almost Near Fine, some fading at spine, in Very Good dustjacket, some nicking and mild wear.
