Attention "young ladies, spinsters and widows": this book is for you! You can read this entire book at Flashbak, so get ready to take notes.
The book is not a theoretical guide to attracting a man. It's basically a collection of personal ads from men who are actively wife-hunting. As you can see, the pickings are pretty good.
And how do you attract a beau of this quality? Author J. Bradley Adams offers a sample letter that you can send through this Nineteenth Century version of OKCupid.
So what are you waiting for? Love awaits you!
