Overview

*Illustrated with pictures of Post and the book’s original pictures.
*Includes a Table of Contents.

In the United States, an entire industry has been created out of etiquette, whether it’s asking for newspaper columnist’s advice on how to write thank you letters, the rules of RSVPing, and other social norms. And without question, one of the pioneers of the etiquette genre was Emily Post, whose name is still often invoked in discussions of proper etiquette and manners. 50 years after her death, Post’s name is still used in the titles of other etiquette books.

Post, of course, also wrote her own tome on etiquette. In 1922 she published Etiquette in Society, in Business, in Politics, and at Home (usually referenced as Etiquette), which became a best seller. Post was also a fixture on radio and newspaper, writing etiquette related columns by the 1930s.

This edition of Post’s Etiquette is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and is illustrated with pictures of her and the book’s original pictures.

This book surprised me in the style in which it was written. There was no snobbery, just explaining it is always to our advantage to be considerate of other people. Of course, in earlier generations centered on ultra wealth and different lifestyles, some information doesn't apply to us without a house full of servants and calling cards for visitation; yet, it is interesting to read about. Basic pleasant conduct and being mindful of others' comfort paints a lovely picture of how society today should be. The book was easy to read and I wish this basic instruction would be given to our children as well. Manners gives self confidence!
