1880 Antique Victorian Gilded Age Manners Etiquette Deportment Balls Love Letter For Sale
“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.”
Compiled from the latest authorities.
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.
It’s all here! – A complete
guide to winning in Victorian and Gilded Age society.
