Frank Harris, journalist and would-be entrepreneur had aspirations which were not so much above his station as above his abilities. In 1901, he started a society magazine, Candid Friend, which lasted just over a year. Perhaps his finest moments came with his attempts, finally unsuccessful, to help Oscar Wilde at the time of his trial.

Minor age toning/foxing but overall in very good order.
