New York and London: Funk and Wagnalls, 1922. Second printing of Post's iconic treatise on proper behavior in every conceivable setting, a best seller that has been in print ever since 1922. A Fine copy that has been well protected by a dust jacket since 1922. The dust jacket is Very Good with a few small chips and tears at the spine ends and along the panels, but overall quite appealing. Printed just two months after the first printing and quite scarce in the original dust jacket.
More important than its scarcity, this is a book that has had a real and lasting impact on our society and culture. Knowledge of Post’s rules of etiquette became a distinguishing mark of high society. This work makes the connection between books and their cultural impact tangible in a way that few others can claim. Fine in Very Good dust jacket. (Item #757)
