"HER SEVEN DEADLY SINS. Here is one of the most talked about novels of our time, the fabulous story of Easter Brandes and her seven deadly sins. James Huneker, the master story-teller, has written a gripping novel of Sodom in Manhattan. The degeneration that wastes away the moral principles of a student, a talented artist - and the girl herself. This complete and unexpurgated edition is the first paperbound reprint of Painted Veils, which was originally published in a special limited printing which sold for $15 a copy." -Back cover
Cover Art Description
A brunette looks out at the reader against a background of building outlines and smaller images of people and scenes. She is wearing a green ball dress with a red stole wrapped around her forearms, arms crossed, her left hand exposed and carrying a musical score. Her hair is up and she stands at a three-quarter angle facing right of the reader, with her head turned to her right. The light falls on her from the front of her body. The image is framed on two sides by a gold margin.
