The 'Roaring Twenties' saw the rise of an exciting post-war culture of jazz, glamour and entertainment. Published around 1925, The Diner's Our Vade-Mecum offers countless enlightening and entertaining hints for throwing and attending fashionable dinner parties. From the etiquette of formal introductions, eating and toasts, to suggestions for after-dinner games, jokes, wedding speeches and the appropriate attire for every social occasion, it is a pocket-sized guide to conducting oneself correctly in an era rediscovering the delights of leisure and elegance. *This is a faithful facsimile edition, and may contain terms offensive to some readers.*
