Very Private Secretary, 1933

A contemporary card series based on vintage book covers. Author of this novel is one Mrs. Baillie Reynolds. 

Love the tag line:  "Her curiosity aroused!" 

John Axe's presentation on the illustrator Pelagie Doane at convention a few years back gave me a new appreciation for this genre.  I think John would have liked this cover.


  1. Very fun and interesting jacket. Wouldn't she make a splendid paper doll?

  2. You are correct, John would have loved this cover. Also I agree with Tattered and Lost, what a wonderful paper doll she would make. Sure wish I could find this book, I enjoy reading what is called cozy mysteries and I think this would fit in fine.
