Barnes and Noble: Emily Post - Daughter of the Gilded Age Mistress of American Manners by Laura Claridge
Emily Post's first book on manners, "Etiquette", was published in 1922 and has since been revised more than a dozen times. Her career as an author, however, is only part of the Emily Post story, as this 525-page biography reveals. Although a socialite by birth, Post was an advocate of kind, thoughtful behavior . . . regardless of social standing. An extraordinary woman, and a remarkable life story.
