The Butler's Guide; to running the home and other graces
Perched on an island off the shores of Cornwall, the soaring castle of St Michael's Mount has been the home to Fiona St Aubyn's family since 1647. For nearly thirty years, Stanley Ager, one of the most celebrated butlers of the twentieth century, ensured that St Michael's Mount was an impeccable place to live and a gracious and welcoming destination for guests.
But you don't need a manor to benefit from Ager's wisdom on running a home gracefully and efficiently. This charmingly illustrated, eminently useful volume offers his important wisdom and techniques.
"A fascinating insight." Julian Fellowes, creator of Downton Abbey
