For the man or woman who aspires to true elegance in the home, this thorough guide teaches the fine art of housekeeping, as carried on in the great houses of England by that rare and remarkable breed - the English butler.

· HOW TO CLEAN AND POLISH SiLVER
· HOW TO BRUSH A JACKET, TROUSERS, OR A FELT HAT
· THE CORRECT WAY TO PACK CLOTHlNG (TISSUE PAPER IS THE SECRET)
· HOW TO CLEAN A CHANDELIER
· THE MANY WAYS TO FOLD A NAPKIN
· THE PROPER WAY TO DUST BOOKS
· HOW TO LIGHT A TABLE FOR DINNER (PLAIN WHITE CAN SUIT ALL OCCASIONS)
· AND MANY OTHER DOMESTIC GRACES
The home-care hints Ager imparts are enhanced by innumerable anecdotes and the flavor of his strong personality. Intriguing, entertaining, and eminently valuable, they recreate in the home a forgotten lifestyle of aristocratic grace and easy elegance. For the hostess with taste or the bacheior with savoir-faire, THE BUTLER'S GUIDE is a must.
