The Girls' Empire : An Annual for English-speaking Girls All Over the World Hardback
This is the original dangerous book for girls...unrevised since 1903!
For a girl these days, it may be fashionable to know how to encrypt your text messages, set up your own webpage, and compile the ultimate playlist...But what about the things that really matter, the things that mattered to girls back in 1903 - what to wear when exercising with a Sandow Grip Dumb-Bell, how to give your poodle a French clip, and how to avoid the "evils of excessive tea drinking..." "The Girls' Empire" is the real thing - written at the beginning of the twentieth century, it sets out to inform and entertain girls - with short stories, career advice, Cosy Corner Chats, and much much more.
This new potted edition is a wonderfully evocative slice of history.
By turns hilarious and poignant, many of its observations and instructions remain quaintly relevant today.
