Social usages in America.

Manners and Social Usages in America. A Book of Etiquette. By Mrs. John Sherwood. pp.448. New and Enlarged Edition, Revised by the Author. 16mo, Extra Cloth, $1 25.
Mrs. Sherwood's admirable little volume differs from ordinary works on the subject of etiquette, chiefly in the two facts that it is founded on its author's personal familiarity with the usages of really good society, and that it is inspired by good sense and a helpful spirit... We think Mrs. Sherwood's little book the very best and most sensible one of its kind that we ever saw. N. Y. Commercial Advertiser.

We have no hesitation in declaring it to be the best work of the kind yet published. The author shows a just appreciation of what is good-breeding and what is snobbishness.... In happy discriminations the excellence of Mrs. Sherwood's book is conspicuous. Brooklyn Union.

It is a sensible and pleasantly written volume, which has already won recognition as one of the best books of its kind, and this new edition is called for by the heartiness with which the public has endorsed the work. Courier, Boston.

A sensible, comprehensive book, which has endured criticism successfully, and deserves now to be regarded the best book of its kind published in this country.... A better guide than Mrs. Sherwood's book through the paths of social usages we do not know. The book is a handsome one, as it ought to be. Christian Intelligencer, N. Y.
