A guest and hostess week-end book, keyed to the slightly above middle ground income group, I should say, on close analysis of the predominating specifications as to equipment, routine, etc. Designed to help make the perfect hostess -- from the husband as guest number one if he's been in the city all week, to the casual uninvited guest -- and everyone in between, with and without children, maids or dogs. Lots of practical advice; some tempting recipes; good suggestions for casual entertainment. The program for the guest is equally valuable -- how to be the perfect guest from the acceptance of the invitation to the bread and butter letter. Goes into such details as hostess gifts (never a book suggested!) and tipping the servants.
