Etiquette

£11.99

Product description

This scarce text first published in 1922 contains the definitive guide to social etiquette, decorum, and manners as outlined by the contemporary authority on the subject: Emily post. Considered the ultimate word on appropriate manners for police society, Etiquette offers a fascinating glimpse into the polite norms of the early 1900 whilst offering timelessly beneficial insights into etiquette, arguably beneficial to and desperately lacking from modern society. With myriad modern applications including historical insight, literary research, and plain interesting reading, this rare text is a lovely addition to anyone’s library and attracts discerning readers for a number of obvious reasons. Etiquette has seen 18 editions, the last of which has been updated for a 20th century audience by Post’s relatives Peggy Post, Lizzie Post, Anna Post, and Daniel Post Senning. We are proud to republish this rare text with a new introductory biography of the author.

Book in good condition with clean pages throughout and securely bound. Printed in 2013.
