The Seven Lady Godivas: The True Facts Concerning History's Barest Family
First published in 1939, the book is a "tongue-in-cheek reworking" of the legends of Lady Godiva and Peeping Tom, featuring seven Godiva sisters who are each engaged to a Peeping brother. When Lord Godiva dies falling from a horse, the girls "were left with a grim obligation. Horses must be studied and charted, made safe for posterity." So they each set out to discover "a new Horse Truth of benefit to all mankind" – completely naked, of course. "Nowhere," says their father, "could there be a group of young ladies that wasted less time upon frivol and froth. No fluffy-duff primping, no feather, no fuss. They were simply themselves and chose not to disguise it."
