Debossed mark on corner of front board possibly indicates book club edition, though this is an unusual signifier. Boards faintly soiled. 1938 Hard Cover. xiv, 121 pp. 8vo. A tongue in cheek guide for those engaging in extramarital affairs. From the preface: 'We have no intention of presenting our qualifications for the authorship of this book. To do so would violate its first rule - discretion. We have outlined numerous situations, in any one of which you may find yourself sooner or later. We think you will agree that our rules for handling these situations are based on sound sense and good taste. But if you do not agree, you have only to follow the opposite course. And see where that lands you.' Illustrations by Saul Steinberg, a regular contributor to The New Yorker. Somewhat scarce - 11 copies in OCLC, no auction records, none in trade.
