{HISTORY}

During the 20th century, Amy Vanderbilt was the foremost authority on how to elegantly breeze through all the social aspects of life in forms of communication, hospitality, congeniality, personal regard and care for others. In 1952, she published her first book on manners and etiquette which took her four years to compile, interviewing hundreds of people around the world to in order to accurately convey the most up-to-date appropriate information on how to handle just about any situation under the sun.

Revised and updated every couple of years, by 1967 the complete book of etiquette had sold over 2 million copies worldwide and was considered the standard bible of gracious living. Each edition is fun o collect because they offer new sections or updates on situations not accounted for in the previous version. This 1967 edition is a doozy of information - containing over 730 pages it contains advice and guidance on so many interesting situations it is fun to read it just like you would a novel - page by page.

You might think that most of the info inside is outdated since it was written 50 years ago - but you would be very wrong to assume such a possibility. Good manners, never ever go out of style. The information contained in here is just as practical and applicable in today's world as it was back then.
