Notes

First edition, first printing; a beautiful copy in the striking dust jacket. On publication it was applauded by contemporaries such as the journalist Anna Steese Richardson, who described it as a "mile-stone in the progress of wage-earning women".
"For the past ten years, business women have been offered nothing better than guide-books which have catalogued the vocations open to girls, listed salaries and suggested the best preparation for the positions described. But Miss Wilkins, recognizing that woman is firmly established in industrial and professional fields and is steadily opening up new avenues for herself, presents a philosophy of fitting women's peculiar qualifications to wage earning, of giving one hundred per cent service for her salary and of getting back one hundred per cent satisfaction from her job It should be in the library of every co-educational institution in the country, every college for girls, every industrial plant where women are employed" (Richardson).
