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.
Emily Post remains the single most influential touchstone for discussions of etiquette in American culture. Although she wrote novels and magazine articles for many years, it was the publication of Etiquette in Society, in Business, in Politics, and at Home that elevated Post to dizzying heights of influence in print and on radio. Through her book and in countless interviews, Post offered advice for all sorts of interpersonal dilemmas and scenarios. Etiquette, according to Post, can be a way to practice kindness: "Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others." Fine in Very Good dust jacket. (Item #757)
