Original bright red cloth lettered in gold on boards. First appeared in magazine serial form by Scribner. This copy is surely the first Canadian edition, if not the first, period. The heroine moves from the American Midwest to New York, in search of eligible husbands to assist her in climbing the social ladder. Struggling with constraints against women before WWI, she appears unhappy even after three marriages. A classic account of mindless trampling of others to advance oneself, by one of America's most popular novelists. 594 pp.
