An excellent reference book for those interested in table settings, table manners and tableware. For example, did you know that there are seven shapes of champagne glasses? Or that the saucer, sherbet or coupe champagne glasses are a form supposedly modeled after Marie Antoinette's right breast? The author does.

A reference guide that covers the history, etiquette, and how-to's of dishes, silverware, drinking glasses, and linens. Also covers tea, coffee and wine, and the structure of formal vs. informal dinners, teas, and buffets. Very informative and useful.
