THE BOOK OF ETIQUETTE
Associated Bookbuyers Company1926
TROUBRIDGE, Lady.The Book Of Etiquette. Associated Bookbuyers Company 1926 third impression. Two volumes complete.Vol 1 [xiii] 240 Vol 2 [x] 235. Two bright, clean books, light foxing to a few leaves and edges, top edges blue. Dustwrapper darkened to spines, largely complete, Vol 2 with 1cm loss to top of spine. Overall Very Good plus. Wonderfully anachronistic volumes , answering questions such as “When a man and woman enter the theatre, who precedes?” “Who precedes when ascending stairs, when entering a car, when entering a public dining room?” “Should the engaged girl embroider her linens with her own initials or the initials of her future married name?” Interestingly, one is advised to engage one or more detectives and inform the police before your wedding- to guard the presents whilst on view and to stop pick pocketing in the porch. Of course.
