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!

Handbuch für Verliebte!

A casual search of the title of the German edition of Miss Abigail’s Guide to Dating, Mating, and Marriage revealed that it appears to be published!

Handbuch für Verliebte: Guter Rat vom ersten Kuss bis zum Altar is available at your local (in Germany, I guess), bookstores and on Amazon.de.

I love the cover, don’t you? I can’t wait to see a copy — the publisher is supposed to send a few but I haven’t gotten them yet.

I’ve just received word that Miss Abigail’s Guide to Dating, Mating and Marriage will be published by Lübbe in the summer of 2008. I knew the German rights had been sold but hadn’t heard anything specific until now. I’m very excited!

The title for their edition will be Handbuch für Verliebte, which translates as Manual for Lovers.

Sehr kühl!
