JONATHAN, Norton Hughes. Gentlemen Arent Sissies.

(Philadelphia, PA): The John C. Winston Company, 1938. Fourth Printing. Octavo. 204 pages. Illustrated by Pelagie Doane. A book of etiquette geared toward “the young man about town who wants to know his way around.” Dating, dancing, partying, etc. Filled with clever aphorisms, the book covers of broad range of topics, such as traveling by sea (“take your valuables to the Purser and your troubles to the room steward”), attending house parties (“tell your hostess how well you slept, whether you did or not”), and observing proper table etiquette (pretend “you’re not hungry”). A near fine copy in dust jacket. Uncommon in this condition.
