Martin, Star-Spangled Manners, American Etiquette, 1st/1st Ed. 2003
Item Details
Description
"Star-Spangled Manners: In Which Miss Manners Defends American Etiquette" by Judith Martin, published by Norton, New York, 2003. Stated First Edition, First Printing with '1' present in the line on the copyright page; b/w illustrations.

Dust jacket with un-clipped original price of $24.95 on the front flap; hard boards with gold lettering on spine; 5.3/4" x 8.1/2", blue endpapers; 319 pages, near fine condition.

"In this "wryly perceptive, historically informed" (BookPage) new book, America's leading expert on civility reminds her Gentle Readers that when the Founding Fathers created a revolution in the name of individual liberty and equality, they also took a stand against hierarchical European etiquette in favor of simplicity over ceremony, and personal dignity over obsequiousness to our rulers."[review]

"This is another of Judith Martin's intelligent and humorous discussions of etiquette. She approaches the topic via history this time, and the result is informative and edifying. Perhaps there is slightly less humor than in some of her other books, but there were several lol spots for me, as well as innumerable smiles and snickers. Evident everywhere is the author's pride in the American manners she wishfully describes." [review]

"Liked Miss Manners defense of American manners as uniquely our own and distinctly different from the European (English) version that was focused on distinctions between social and economic classes. We see ourselves as equal (although we don’t always reach the ideal)." [review]
