About

Miss Abigail has a collection of over 1,000 classic advice books, spanning from 1822 to 1978 and covering a variety of topics, from love and romance to etiquette and charm. The collection sparked the idea for this site, then a book, Miss Abigail's Guide to Dating, Mating, and Marriage, which has inspired an off-broadway production of the same name!

Evelyn Millis Duvall

Saturday, December 15th, 2007

As you probably are aware, the first book I ever collected in this genre is called the Art of Dating, written by Evelyn Millis Duvall. So needless to say, this book and author are pretty important to Miss Abigail.

Well, I got a nice surprise this week. Duvall’s grandson was doing some searches on her name this week and happened upon my site, so he emailed me to say hello and to tell me a bit about his Grandma Duvall and the rest of the family.

Very cool! Always great to hear a bit more about the people behind these books…
