For the Vintage Crafter The Butler's Guide by Stanley Ager and Fiona St. Aubyn $22 Clarkson Potter A reprint of a hard-to-find classic, this is both a wonderful glimpse into another era and a practical guide to many things the modern era has forgotten how to do, like fold a dress shirt or coat, pare a candle, tie a bow tie, remove stains from clothes and dinnerware, and even shut the door quietly. Written by a butler of 30 years in an era when butlers buttled, it's a delight.
