Editorial Review
This guide to good manners was produced by Lillian Watson in 1921 as a rewrite of the Encyclopedia of Etiquette by Emily Holt. Mining her own experience as a social misfit and would-be social climber for material, it was a huge hit with those aspiring to a grander station. Originally published in two volumes, but presented here in one combined edition, The Book of Etiquette covers: • the secret of social success • engagements and weddings • the intricacies of the social call • correspondence and invitations • use of the napkin • yachting parties for bachelors • musicals and private theatricals • some important rules about golf • the charm of correct speech • and much more... The only serious competitor to Emily Post as etiquette maven to America between the wars, LILLIAN EICHLER WATSON (b. 1902) was a 19-year-old copywriter for the book publisher Doubleday when she was commissioned to rewrite the outdated Encyclopedia of Etiquette by Emily Holt.
