STANLEY AGER spent nearly thirty of his fifty-three years as a butler and valet at St. Michael's Mount under the Lords Levan. His teachings have been deemed vital by butlers from Buckingham Palace among many others. FIONA ST. AUBYN is an author and the granddaughter of the late Lord and Dowager Lady St. Levan.


"The wisdom of butler and lady combine in this book to instruct anyone who wishes to 'recreate that same grace in entertainment' on how to lay down wine, polish brass, iron trousers, clean shoes, and so on. If you know people who aspire to these tasks, give them this book." The New York Times "A fascinating insight." Julian Fellowes, creator of Downton Abbey "The gentleman's impeccable gentleman... delightful and informative for everyone." People "Packed with sensible information, to say nothing of the enjoyment to be gained in reading about life 'downstairs' and protocol 'upstairs' in a stately English home." Publishers Weekly
