JOHNSON, Pamela Hansford.
Girdle of Venus.
First edition, first impression. Girdle of Venus is the story of Marcia Trapper, or ‘Madame Marjanah’, a seaside town fortune teller whose prowess at influencing people soon starts to play tricks on her own mind. This is the first copy we have come across to have a dust jacket.
