210, 2 [ads] pages. Numerous attractive black and white illustrations in text. "Bachelors are the most charming of entertainers. What woman ever refuses an opportunity to chaperon at a bachelor dinner or studio tea? What debutante does not feel secretly ecstatic at the very idea of looking behind the scenes and peeping into the corners of some famous bachelor menage?" - page 2. "There is no complete compendium for the ambitious bachelor, but his proverbial fare of 'bread and cheese and kisses' needs to be modified to suit present-day needs, and the judicious addition of a few crumbs to his store of provender may be welcome. From these crumbs from many bachelor cupboards, then, may he find an occasional 'crumb of comfort' and a little lift over some hard place along the road. If he finds it herein, the purpose of this book will have been fulfilled." - pages 7-8. Among the twenty-one chapters we find: The Impecunious Bachelor, Bachelor Etiquette, Devils and Grills, A Dissertation on Drinks, Correct Clothes, Carving and Game, Bachelor Bonnes Bouchees, and many more. Binding intact. Prior owner's name atop front free endpaper. Average wear and soiling to decorated blue cloth-covered boards. A sound copy of this cheeky vintage bachelor handbook.
