    Women have served all these centuries as looking glasses possessing the magic and delicious power of reflecting the figure of man at twice its natural size Without that power probably the earth would be unknown We should still be scratching the outlines of deer on the remains of mutton bones and bartering flints for sheep skins or whatever simple ornament took our unsophisticated taste Supermen and Fingers of
