Bacchus Behave! by Alma Whitaker (1933)
Los Angeles Times’ gossip columnist Alma Whitaker wrote the lovely, witty tome on post-Prohibition drink and drinking—Bacchus Behave! The Lost Art of Polite Drinking—adding with more than a few blurbs from film director Rupert Hughes, actors Clark Gable, Charles Chaplin, Marie Dressler, Tom Mix, and blockbuster producer Cecil B. De Mille.
As you can gather from this list of contents, Whitaker has a few veteran words to less-wise new American drinkers:
—In Which We Discuss Nectar
—Nectar & Manners
—Simple Rules For Righteous Behaviour
—Hints To Hostesses
—On Being A Good Guest
—Customs To Frown Upon
—Canapés & Hors-D’oeuvres
—The Buffet Supper
—Punches & Cups
—notes by Anistatia Miller
