Just in at Paris Hotel Boutique: A Tour of the White House with Mrs. John F. Kennedy and Vogue's Book of Etiquette, 1948, the Millicent Fenwick edition. The Vogue book is bound in dark maroon and has a pretty scroll detail. (Oh, and by the way, the 1920s edition of the etiquette tome is available too.)

These are fabulous - to read AND look at. I once found Mrs. Kennedy's White House Tour guide for sale in an old shop for a $1! It's charmingly written and illustrated. She had good taste in all things.

Thanks for sharing!

These books are soooo special! I may need three jobs to collect the wonderful art, books, etc that keep popping up on my list.

Skyla -- what a find! Thanks for sharing.

Karena -- it is fun to collect books over time, build a library.

You have an incredible site, it's funny that I found it while visiting a friend's site in France. C'est la vie. I'm very new to this blogging world and it continues to amaze me.
Happy Twirls,
