LOL: Man and Maid
Man and Maid by Elinor Glyn is one of Barbara Cartland's favorite novels and is condensed in this November 1977 edition. Sir Nicholas was injured during WW1 and in his gloomy state decides to write a book. He hired Alathea Sharp as his typist, but she soon becomes much more to him!
Francis Marshall illustrates a passionate scene between our couple! I love the picture of the room with the typewriter on top of the desk and the trash can below. Note the crutch in the chair, too. Our heroine wears a pretty lilac suit which sets off her red hair. Another great cover by Francis Marshall!
