When I joined Cotillion in high school (the lazy Cotillion that involved only twice-yearly teas and that I did mainly for resume padding, not the Cotillion with the coming-out ball and stuff), my mom half-jokingly got me two etiquette books, this one and a 1901 "Etiquette for All Occasions" by Mrs. Burton Kingsland.

I still have both books and have actually learned quite a bit from them.

I've got a soft spot for etiquette books. I'm all for the satisfaction, and superiority, that comes with knowing when a taffeta dress is appropriate for a wedding reception, or whether it's all right for a junior executive to wear a sports coat with slacks in the office, especially when senior executives do it.

Back in my younger years I kept a tumblr on modern etiquette, a real page-turner, bringing delight and pleasure to literally tens of followers. This isn't mentioned in some callow attempt

Manners never go out of style! We may approach certain circumstances differently because of advancements in life, such as technology, but the essence is there. Great reference book!
