"Charm says everything--tact, sympathy, poise and perfect manners--always." Brush up on your manners for the holiday party season with the first edition of Emily Post's 1922 classic. Placed online last week by Bartleby.com (last reviewed in the September 3, 1999 Scout Report
), the electronic edition includes all 627 pages, numerous illustrations of social cards and invitations, the original photographs, a helpful subject index, and select quotations. Users can browse the book in HTML format by chapter. Whether gentlemen or women of charm would like to know when to remove their hat or bow, how to issue and receive invitations, how to avoid bungling their formal dinner parties, or simply how to conduct themselves in the office or at home, they will find it all here, presented with style, grace, and authority.
