Stanley Ager entered service as a hallboy at the age of fourteen and eventually became head butler at St. Michael's Mount, where he remained for nearly thirty of his fifty-three years in service. The Butler's Guide was written after he and his wife, Barbara, retired nearby to Marazion, Cornwall. They are buried on St. Michael's Mount.

Fiona St. Aubyn is also the author of A Portrait of Georgian London and wrote ClothesCarewith James Wagenvoord. She graduated from the University of Winchester with a degree in creative writing and lives in Hampshire with her family. Fiona St. Aubyn is a granddaughter of the late third Lord St. Levan and his wife the Dowager Lady St. Levan, and her brother now lives at St. Michael's Mount. She knew Stanley Ager all her life.

Reviews

"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
