It's out of print and on Ebay it's an outrageous price. If your library does Inter Library Loans you can still find it at college libraries. Just go to your library and fill out the card. It doesn't cost a lot and in a few weeks you get your book. This does contain dangerous recipes for modern times, so take caution and do not follow the recipes. It's just for reference of beauty routines gone by.

Period photos and instructions on how women achieved their "faces" in the 20s-50s. Great if you want to know how to get the look, but please use modern products (includes dangerous period recipes). My how times have changed! :)

I like the way this book is organized, and that it includes photos for every section. I do wish that it had included more in-depth info, but what is there is excellent information.
