A charming and very funny guide to entertaining etiquette from the 1950s.
Ethelind Fearon was born in 1898 and lived in Thaxted, Essex. Her great passion was gardening (she was gardener to H.G Wells) and restoring fourteenth-century houses, but under pressure from publishers and an eager public she also wrote a number of books on such diverse but essential subjects as pigkeeping, pastries, how to keep pace with your daughter and how to grow herbs. She also wrote a number of children's books, including The Secret of the Chateau and The Sheep-dog Adventure. Ethelind Fearon died in 1974.
