The original guide to good manners explains why "nothing is less important than which fork you use." Etiquette is the science of living. It embraces everything. It is ethics. It is honor.   A popular phenomenon when it was first published in 1922, Emily Post's Etiquette quickly established her as the undisputed authority on considerate behavior. Her books, syndicated column, and radio program soon made the phrase "according to Emily Post" part of the American lexicon. Though updated editions have appeared over the years, the original text is both a fascinating window into American high society at the dawn of the Roaring Twenties and a timeless testament to the value of social grace.   Covering a broad range of topics, Etiquette includes chapters on "Tea and Other Afternoon Parties," "Balls and Dances," "Etiquette in Business and Politics," and "Travelling at Home and Abroad." This edition also includes an introduction by editor Richard Duffy as well as photographic illustrations throughout.   This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.… (mer)

An excellent book that describes in detail what ones footmen and upstairs maids should wear and how they should act when answering the door. An absolute must for anyone who has an extensive household and wants the silver polished daily. ( )

I love old etiquette books, and Emily Post is the queen of etiquette. Need to know how to properly slurp soup or be escorted across the dance floor? This is your book!

Emily Post's famous treatise of the art of Etiquette, much of the rules have gone to the wayside these days, but still a useful reference for special occasions.

“Society” is an ambiguous term; it may mean much or nothing. Every human being—unless dwelling alone in a cave—is a member of society of one sort or another, and therefore it is well to define what is to be understood by the term “Best Society” and why its authority is recognized. Best Society abroad is always the oldest aristocracy; composed not so much of persons of title, which may be new, as of those families and communities which have for the longest period of time known highest cultivation.
[Chapter 1, 1940 ed.]
One is apt to think of Etiquette as being of no more real service to the average citizen than a top hat -- something that is of importance to none but brides or diplomats or the newly-rich or persons lately elected to political office.

Replicas of this book, originally entitled "Etiquette in Society, in Business, in Politics and at Home," have recently been printed with simply "Etiquette" on the cover but the full title on the title page. These are the same work, but "Emily Post's Etiquette" by Peggy Post is a different work.
