This book is another blast from the past. Is it current? Nope. Is it useful? Maybe if you are stuck in a Nick and Nora Charles movie and need to “blend”.
Aside from any collection discussions, this book is a lot of fun to read and of course it should be retained somewhere as a real glimpse into etiquette of the rich, upper crust WASP of pre-war United States. Need advice on dating ladies of quality? Attending the theater? Etiquette at a bridge party? Pitching woo? This is your manual.
