About This Item

Detroit, Michigan: Ford Motor Company, 1924. First Edition. Softcover. Very Good. (12)pp; 8 large illustrations from photographs. Bound in color-pictorial wrappers, the cover showing a Cinderella-like woman emerging from a coach with attendants. Near fine condition. In the original envelope with slight corner wear. 11" x 8.5" The text is slanted toward the American woman as independent and busy enough to have a car of her own. Each photograph shows women with their Ford Closed Cars: playing bridge (Model Ts in background); shopping at a stylish store (Ford Coupe); driving a child to school (Tudor Sedan); golf outing (Ford Coupe); meeting a train (Ford Sedan); etc. "Inclement weather need never mar the apparel of the woman who has provided herself with her individual Ford Closed Car."
