White Gloves and Party Manners

Written by Marjabelle Young and Ann Buchwald

Illustrated by Christiane

1965 First Edition

 

This is an illustrated guide to manners for “little girls (and their brothers, too)” written by Young and Buchwald.  Illustrated by French fashion illustrator, Christiane, advice includes instructions on taking a bubble bath, cleaning your finger nails, answering the door at a party, and striking up pleasant conversation.  While outdated, this book offers a nice glimpse into history.  White Gloves and Party Manners is a new acquisition for the Special Collections and is now a part of our “How to be a ‘good girl’” treasury.

This book is a treasure from the Mount Holyoke College Special Collections.  See it live in the treasure case of the library reading room!  To find out more visit us online or in the cellar of Dwight.
