Format: Paperback
I actually have the original hard back, which covers a bit more the paperback. I ordered the paper back which is also very good. Its very old school very formal. The book has some great examples of all kinds of invitations, thank you letters, letters that sell, as well as the general rules when writing these various types of letters. I think for the price this is a great book to have at home or in your desk drawer at work.

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
My sister-in-law came over one day with a 1963 tattered copy of this paperback and some clear packing tape. She wanted me to make some repairs to keep the pages together. This was obviouly a lost cause. Still, it was her favorite book. She is not a native English speaker and relies on this book as a primer on proper letter writing.

I searched on-line and found that archival book repair tape costs $8.00. On a whim, I logged onto Amazon and found a later edition of her favorite book in new condition for $5.50 shipped to my front door. The choice was clear. A week later, the book arrived in as advertised condition.

You can imagine her surprise when I presented her with the "repaired" book!

Many thanks to the seller for actually having a copy of this book for sale!

This book arrived in a shorter time than was specified, which I was thrilled about. It was in good condition and I would order from the sender again.
