Hardcover Book in Dustjacket, 6x9.5", 416 pages. Condition: VERY GOOD book, slight fading to the spine, light signs of handling, overall still tight, bright, clean and unmarked; in a GOOD MINUS dustjacket that is chipped with closed tears along its edges and at its spine ends, has some shelf rubs, and has a stiff vertical crease to its front flap (where the book was closed incorrectly on the flap), but is still bright, clear and doing its job well. A solid, nice copy. SCARCE SIGNED and INSCRIBED FIRST PRINTING COPY. From the dj flap: ******The Directrice of the Haute Couture House of NINA RICCI offers the American woman a complete alphabetical guide to every phase of entertaining from simple buffets to elaborate banquets and balls; choice of linens, china, and silverware to handling VIPs, latecomers, and weekend guests. The way to do things elegantly is not, as Madame Dariaux points out, just a matter of caviar and champagne. She shows how with imagination, organization, and the right spirit every woman can be a confident and complemented hostess. A bountiful helping of information and inspiration served up in a friendly, flavorful style. A really nice signed copy!******. Bookseller Inventory #
