Subject / Topic:  According to EmilyPost.com, “Emily Post was born in Baltimore, Maryland, on October 27, 1872, and educated by governesses and at private schools in Baltimore and New York. She spent her summers at Bar Harbor, Maine, and Tuxedo Park, New York, which her father Bruce Price, a prominent architect, had been commissioned to design and develop….”
Format: Hardcover.
Published:  1965; 95th printing.  Revised by Elizabeth Post.
Condition:  The book is in very good condition to excellent condition (perhaps it was poor etiquette to allow a book to become damaged… or perhaps it was rarely opened?).

Price:  Buy-it-now price is $9.95 plus $3.95 shipping & handling (that’s the book – or economy – rate), if not picked up in person.  Opening bid if on eBay is $7.50.
# Available:  one
Defects, Nicks and/or Blemishes: This book is in very good to excellent condition.  Any white shading that shows in the photos is from the camera flash and is not seen in the item itself.

Message re Our Products:
All of the items we offer are vintage, antique or simply pre-owned.  Therefore, reasonable wear & tear is to be expected, and our items are sold as seen and as described in the photos and/or in person. 
We try to describe any damage, nicks, blemishes or other problems of which we are aware in any and all of our listings, and always include plenty of clear photographs which are integral to the description, so please review them closely.  
Also, please be aware that vintage and antique items are unlikely to be in factory condition, so if you aren’t used to buying antique or vintage items – and are in fact looking for a pristine, unused item – a new reproduction may be better suited for you. We ordinarily do not “clean up” items because such cleaning may detract from their value. 
We are specific and honest in our descriptions because we want happy buyers who will return and/or refer their friends!
