Written nearly 50 years ago, Barbara Cartland's Etiquette Handbook conjures up a period when addressing work colleagues by their first names was frowned upon, wives could expect to receive a weekly allowance of five shillings from their husbands, and hats were ubiquitous.
Laced throughout with Barbara Cartland's wit and wisdom, and Francis Marshall's illustrations, this is a wonderfully evocative insight into the manners of an England that has largely disappeared.

Great book, wrong narrator
I read this book last year. Not only was it a real eye-opener to how life was lived by the well-heeled in the early 1960's, but it took me back to a world I remember as a child. I read the book with Miss Cartland's voice in my head, but was very disappointed with the choice of narrator for the audiobook. She's just not 'grand' enough.
