VOGUE’S BOOK OF ETIQUETTE. PRESENT-DAY CUSTOMS OF SOCIAL INTERCOURSE WITH THE RULES FOR THEIR CORRECT OBSERVANCE.

New York: Doubleday, Doran & Company, 1935.

Hard Cover. Early Printing. This title first published by Conde Nast in 1925 was really a different book. In his Preface, Frank Crowninshield notes that “The first Vogue’s Book of Etiquette, which appeared before the world began to get so noisy ... [was] perhaps too gentle in its admonitions; it whispered at a time when the only way to make oneself heard was to yell. The present book ... [is] in step with the tempo of modern times.” [p. 2]. A clean copy of this early printing with a bit of toning to the endpapers; the delightfully art deco dustjacket has minor shelfwear with a bit of loss to the spine extremities; there is a small chip to the top of the rear panel; it has not been price-clipped and is now protected in a new mylar cover.

Very Good binding / Very Good dust jacket.
