But the main thing - already in the first edition of the book "Etiquette" Emily Post offers a certain opportunity, purpose, seductive for the general reader: High...

This book was originally published prior to 1923, and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the same format as the original work.

We believe this work is culturally important in its original archival form. While we strive to adequately clean and digitally...
