Virginia Prince, a somewhat controversial 20th century transgender activist who published Transvestia magazine and founded the Society for the Second Self, both aimed towards male cross-dressers. This book acts as a how-to guide for her readers, covering topics ranging from issues regarding physical presentation (such as clothing, cosmetics, and wigs), to public conduct and legal aspects of cross-dressing, to the medical aspects of what is now known as transitioning.

Includes a note on rear front endpaper which reads "Very good book on tip concerning---female impersonation."
