“There are certain sensible rules of etiquette which have come down from one cultured generation to another, and have stood the test of time. These are observed in the best circles in Europe and America, and are to society what common law is the body politic. Of these, no man who is ambitious to win in society, or in business life, can afford to be ignorant or unobservant.”

THE

MANNERS

THAT WIN

Compiled from the latest authorities.

1880

FIRST EDITION

This rare book of Victorian/Gilded Age rules of etiquette is arguably the most detailed and complete book on manners from that period. The preface states that “A manual of deportment, to be useful, must contain specific and minute directions rather than fine discourses and glittering generalities. It will be useful as it is clear, concise, and exact in matters of detail.” The page examples pictured below show just how detailed and explicit this book of deportment is.
