Here are three different books that I just had to buy because of their quaint titles. First, I present the novel, Wanted: A Husband, by Samuel Hopkins Adams. From the cover: “Wanted: A Husband. Unmarried lady on honeymoon desires one temporary husband. Must have tact, amiability, capacity for self-effacement, and British accent. Apply Parlor Car 13, G.C. Station.”
Second, I offer for your contemplation, How to Be Happy Though Married (no author listed) and Manners Makyth Man by the author of How to Be Happy Though Married.
I enjoy the way the somewhat cynical titles are softened by the beautiful decorative bindings.
