Why We Love This

Entertaining is Fun! How to Be a Popular Hostess by Dorothy Draper. New York: Doubleday, 1941. First Edition. 249 pages. Hardcover, lacking dust jacket. The blurb about Draper from the dust jacket flap has been clipped and tipped onto the flyleaf. Entertaining classic from one of the great 20th-century tastemakers. It includes many great Draper aphorisms such as “Good liquor is not cheap. Cheap liquor is not good.”
