About this Item

First edition: Formal serving arrangements and menu suggestions for households that make regular use of waitstaff and butler's pantries, serve squab breasts at luncheon, and accept that offering fruit at breakfast requires finger bowls on the table ? while still needing a reminder that to include a salad at a formal afternoon tea is "to commit a social solecism" (p. 32). One chapter is titled "Outside the Eighteenth Amendment," and describes the appropriate serving methods for various wines and liqueurs; menus are offered for Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Lent; the last six chapters are dedicated to general principles of home decorating. This is the original edition and => not a modern reprint. 8vo. 64 pp. Bitting 273; Brown, Culinary Americana, 2914. Publisher's textured paper wrappers, front wrapper with printed title; extremities rubbed. Pages slightly age-toned, otherwise clean. => A delightfully aspirational read.
