Vintage Book – Emily Post’s Etiquette



Subject / Topic:  According to, “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:  $9.95  plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax

# Available:  one – although we have several other copies of varying publication dates (to be added to this blog soon)

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.

Item Location: Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps, 189B Main Street, Lewiston. (Directions below.)

087 088 090

NOTE:  With the exception of books, maps & music, most of our antique and other inventory can now be found at one of the great antique shops or flea markets listed here: 

We hope you will enjoy our booths at those locations as you did our shop on Main Street.

For those dying to check out the revamped Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps, we are still in the same building, but our new entrance is at the back of that building.  You’ll see some signs in the windows saying “Heritage Collectibles”, “Retail Shop” and “Welcome”!

Just turn off Main Street in Lewiston onto Park Street and park in the first available parking spot.  The entrance is through the door at the end of the building on the right hand side.  You’ll see signs in the windows (“Retail Store” and “Heritage Collectibles” and “Antiques” as well as others; you’ll also see my silver Jeep Liberty parked there.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us for the past three+ years!


In memory of my beloved husband John K Snyder… 20 Sept 1956 – 21 Oct 2016.
He loved our shops, especially the section we called Heritage Books, Maps & Ephemera – that was his baby.

He loved me like crazy, and oh how I loved him.

Follow our blog at, in honor of my husband, and all others who have been lost to internal demons that in the end, overwhelmed them.

All of the profits after expenses from Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps will go to help fund The Grief Warrior Project, a suicide prevention drop-in and counseling center in the process of being developed.

(Please Note: The Grief Warrior Project is in no way intended to be reflective of, or piggy back off, Wounded Warriors which serves those military personnel wounded after September 11, 20o1.  Like too many others, John was a warrior long before then.)
