I put Emily Post’s Etiquette, 19th Edition by Lizzie Post and Daniel Post Senning on reserve at the library in late May. On June 5th, I went to pick it up and almost fell over when I lifted the book off the shelf. It was huge!
Front cover of the book
This new behemoth comes in at 722 pages and weighs almost five lbs. I am sure of this because, at the risk of sounding like a nut job, I weighed it after staggering home with the book, groceries and the daily mail that I foolishly picked up at the end of this backbreaking trek.
I made a giant mug of coffee to boost my energy level and sat down to take a close look at, what can only be called “the absolute definitive book of Manners for Today” -- which is the subtitle of this tome.
Emily Post -- 1872 to 1960: Her first etiquette guide appeared 95 years ago
The book is so overwhelming that the only way I can tackle it is to quote liberally from the back cover. It is described as “bringing sound wisdom to all-new topics.” Some brave soul has done a masterful job of summing up the contents. Here goes:

I’m always on the prowl for fascinating females doing unusual things so I was stopped in my tracks by an article that appeared in the New York Post on Monday, September 23, 2019.
You and your family came to Manhattan for the holidays, but you’re having so much fun you decide to stay longer. After the tree at Rock Center, the windows on Fifth and the Met what else is there? You’re in “The City That Never Sleeps” so there are lots more goodies for you and yours to take in.
We’re at the beginning of 2020 so I wanted to start with a “WOW” – however I hope I’m not overdoing it! When I came across this piece in The Week of August 30, 2019 (it originally appeared in TheDailyBeast.com and was written by journalist, Jeff Maysh) I was thunderstruck. I simply couldn’t believe what I was reading.
