2 St. Laurent, Cecil. Translated by Coburn Gilman. Cover art by Freeman Eliot. THE SECRETS OF CAROLINE CHERIE.
Dell, New York, 1959. 
288 pp, mass market paperback. "It was Talleyrand himself who sent Caroline to the Russian Imperial Court as France's secret agent. But when the Russian prince who entertained her learned the truth, only her own unsurpassable bewitchery could get her out." "More (and better) of France's favorite boudoir heroine, in the racy, rollicking sequel to 'The Affairs of Caroline Cherie', 'Caroline Cherie', 'Caroline Coquette'. In which the French successor to Amber, Kitty, and Duchess Hotspur mixes with war and politics - and finds both her patriotism (and her marital fidelity) severely strained." Interior - very light browning to pages, otherwise clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - very light edge wear, ve r y l i g h t rubbing - mainly on rear cover, front hinge crease, soft ctrease on rear cover, light creases on spine. Very Good-
