        Etiquette

      New York: Funk & Wagnalls Company, 1922. New York: Funk & Wagnalls Company, 1922. First edition of this seminal work in etiquette and personal relations. Octavo, original blue cloth with titles to the spine and front panel in gilt. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with the lightest of rubbing. A very nice copy uncommon in this condition.Etiquette is a seminal work in personal relations that ranges from topics on how to conduct oneself when meeting strangers to how one should behave at formal dinners and engagements. It has pioneered many social networking concepts, granting Post a name synonymous with proper etiquette and manners that is referenced in etiquette books even today. Joan Didion, contemporary author of The Year of Magical Thinking, considered Post's entry on funerals a source of great consolation after the passing of her husband (Campbell, 2005). The recent publication of Post's first full-length biography suggests that her legacy is pertinent more now than ever (Claridge, 2008).

Chiefly mastiff with a dash of foxhound, we called him Pas Demi. He made no demur and always answered. He was beautiful and had a partiality for taking lonely ladies out for walks; he was a very perfect knight, bristling and barking at any man who came too near. Indeed, if one were seated when a member of that suspected sex came by, it was well to rise and avert bloodshed.
