Posted on December 3, 1999Bartleby.com has announced the publication of the 627-page first edition of Emily Post's 1922 etiquette guide, Etiquette in Society, in Business, in Politics and at Home.

Bartleby.com began as a personal research experiment in 1993 and within one year published the first classic book on the Web. Since then Bartleby.com has grown to incorporate in 1999 and engage a staff of editors and Internet professionals who select, design, and create the electronic book experience. Other works at Bartleby.com include: Bartlett's Familiar Quotations (9th ed.), Strunk's Elements of Style (1st ed.), Fowler's the King's English (2nd ed.), and "BartlebyVerse," which comprises six classic poetry anthologies, including the Oxford Book of English Verse.
