Preface. 

 

 

To the ladies of America is this little work, "THE LADIES' BOOK OF 

USEFUL INFORMATION," dedicated. It is a book written expressly for 

women. This book is full from cover to cover of useful and necessary 

information for women. Never before has so much knowledge with which 

women should be acquainted been printed in one book. It is a perfect 

storehouse of useful facts. Almost every lady spends many dollars 

every year for cosmetics, medicines, household articles, etc., which 

this book would save her. 

 

This is a book which every lady should have, and which every mother 

should place in the hands of her daughters as they come to years of 

understanding. Every girl of twelve and upwards should read this 

valuable work. 

 

Many books costing from three to five dollars do not contain half the 

information contained in this work. Everything described in this 

preface is taught in this book. 

 

It teaches ladies the secret of Youth, Beauty, Health. 

 

The first chapter teaches all about Personal Beauty. 

 

Every lady desires to be beautiful, and it is the duty of every woman 

to be as attractive as possible. All may enhance their charms and be 

lovely by following the directions of this book. Few persons know how 

to improve their natural looks so as to captivate, charm, and win the 

admiration of those whom they meet. This book tells the wonderful 

secret--all the ancients ever knew, and all that has been discovered 

since. It teaches how to wonderfully improve the person in loveliness. 

The real secret of changing an ordinary looking person into one of 

great beauty makes this book of great value. Nature does something for 

us, but art must make the perfect man or woman. 

 

If you desire bright, melting eyes, a clear, soft, rose-tinted 

complexion, beautiful hands and graceful figure, well-developed and 

perfect, use the knowledge which you will find in this book. 

 

It teaches how to acquire a beautiful, delicate loveliness which 

cannot be surpassed, and which can be retained to a very late age. By 

means of this teaching a woman of thirty-five or forty can easily pass 

for a girl of twenty-five. 

 

It teaches how to conceal the evidence of age, and how to make the 

most stubbornly red and rough hands beautifully soft and white. 

Remember that "THE LADIES' BOOK OF USEFUL INFORMATION" does not teach
