About This Item

This book is the Replica edition published in 1969. The book has a library marking on the spine, and has library stamps on the outside pages.After 17 editions Etiquette by Emily Post is still the ultimate word on appropriate manners. In 1969 Funk & Wagnalls, the original publisher of Etiquette, produced a beautiful replica of the the 1922 first edition complete with gold lettering on navy blue pebble-finished cover boards. The front endpaper bears a facsimile of Emily's handwritten inscription, "This is one of the first two copies printed as tests for the first edition (which is stained blue at the top) . . ." and signed "Emily Post, August 1922." Inside are private B&W photographs depicting such elegant events as, "The most elaborate dinner dance ever given in New York" as well as facsimiles of social forms. The text of the 1922 edition is a wonderful journey through time to an era of footmen and PPC cards, debutantes and the duties of a chaperon. The work of novelist Emily Post is evident in the delightful characters such as, Mr. and Mrs. Worldly and the Eminents who represent the epitome of elegance and good taste while the social-climbing Richard Vulgar represents the worst. As dated as it may seem, some things are eternal: read what Emily Post wrote 88 years ago: "It is commonplace to remark that older people invariably feel that the younger generation is speeding swiftly on the road to perdition. But whether the present younger generation is really any nearer to that frightful end than any previous one, is a question that we, of the present older generation are scarcely qualified to answer. To be sure, manners seem to have vanished. . . . It is difficult to maintain that youth today is so very different from what it has been in other periods of the country's history, especially as the 'capriciousness of beauty,' the 'heartlessness' and 'carelessness' of youth are charges of a too-suspiciously bromidic flavor to carry conviction."
