About the Author

Emily Price Post was born in October of 1872 or 1873 in Baltimore, Maryland to Bruce and Josephine Lee Price. She was homeschooled and, later, attended finishing school in New York City. In 1892, she married Edwin Main Post, a banker from a widely known family in the social circles of Long Island. The couple had two sons, Edwin M. Post, Jr. and Bruce Price Post, who died in 1927. Subsequently, Mr. and Mrs. Post were divorced.

As well as Etiquette, which was in its eighty-ninth printing at the time of her death, Emily Post wrote other works, including fiction and short stories. In addition, she wrote a cookbook, The Emily Post Cook Book.

In 1946, Emily Post founded the Emily Post Institute. She died on September 25, 1960, and her name has lived on in the public domain as synonymous with etiquette.

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!
