215 pages; Clean and tight in original green cloth binding with decorative stamping in blind at spine and front cover. From the Preface: "For the first time members of society residing in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia are adequately listed, whether they make their homes in small or large communities. Also they have received this adequate listing in a volume edited from a comprehensive, national viewpoint, by persons intimately conversant with local condition." Each persons listing includes keyed abbreviations to indicate their membership in Private Clubs and Historical Societies; e.g. Society of Cincinnati, Daughters of American Revolution, Huguenot Society, Alibi Club of Washington, Burning Tree Club, Elkridge Foxhunt, Congressional Club, etc. Clearly, many if not all of these people were much happier at the beginning of the year when this directory was issued than they were by the fall social season.
