A.F.; [Hester SAINSBURY, Illus.] The Ladies' Pocket Book of Etiquette. Waltham Saint Lawrence: Golden Cockerel Press, 1928.

Small 8vo., vellum-backed decorative paper boards, spine lettered in gilt; outer edge umtrimmed; original red paper dust jacket printed in black; ribbon marker; pp. [xiv], 55, [iii]; with four engravings by Hester Sainsbury; a near-fine copy, with several pages unopened, ribbon marker frayed at the end; jacket a touch sunned to spine with a few creases and nicks; a lovely example.
Limited edition, no. 57 of 500 copies, of which 250 were reserved for the United States of America. A charming guide to 19th century etiquette which, as Waltham St Lawrence writes in the Preface, "still hold much interest for her prototype of 1928, and can indeed afford pabulum for earnest consideration."
Surpsingly scarce.
