(*NEW ARRIVAL*) (Etiquette) Pierce, Paul. Dinner and Luncheons: Novel Suggestions for All Social Occasions.

Pictorial charcoal boards lettered & stamped in gilt. First Edition. Chicago: Brewer, Barse, [1907]. 

One of a beautiful series of little books by Paul Pierce about how to throw food-centric events (parties, teas, etc.). This one contains suggested menus and advice on festive gatherings. For instance, "Over the round dining table suspend a hoop wound with smilax or red and yellow ribbon. From this hoop hang tiny bells by invisible wires. A Japanese 'windbell' is especially suitable...." There are also numerous toasts that hosts and offer their guests. Rubbing to spine ends, else very good.
