I think it probably is! So we can either get her head, or headless body, but never both :p

Not sure if it's possible to add the above cover to Goodreads, if it helps I've attached a screenshot of the info including ISBN from my library website. I can't find the cover anywhere else either, it has a link to get more details on LibraryThing, but it doesn't have the version with this cover.

I have librarian status at GR, so can load the edition. Just been busy, lazy and too distracted by the never-ending Bundy saga. You can't make this stuff up.

They really are getting mileage out of that photo shoot.

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

But at least it's a pretty gown. Not like the horrid burgundy polyester satin ruff with the dime-store jewelry stitched all over the dress.

So I don't think this is the same girl because the dress is different but the hat and hair is so similar I had to post it:

Is this the same model in a slightly different getup? Hard to tell with half her face covered but the eyes look SO similar.
