About this product
- DescriptionFor Downton Abbey fans, this is the revered butler's guide to running your home gracefully. Stanley Ager served fifty-three years as a butler in some of the most magnificent houses in Britain. Closest to his heart was St. Michael's Mount in Cornwall, where he worked for the second and third Lords Levan for three decades. This book - written with Fiona St. Aubyn, granddaughter of the third Lord Levan - is his masterwork and guidebook on how to maintain the home elegantly and efficiently. From caring for clothing to managing the table, all of the basics of home management are covered here in delicious detail. Recently called a bible for traditional butlers by The New York Times, it could be the source material for the beloved Downton Abbey characters Carson and Bates.
