Elegant Etiquette in the Nineteenth Century
Covering all these nineteenth century dilemmas and more, this book is your must-have guide to the etiquette of our well-heeled forebears. As it takes you through the intricacies of rank, the niceties of the street, the good conduct that was desired in the ballroom and the awkward blunders that a lady or gentleman would of course have wanted to avoid, you will discover an abundance of etiquette advice from across the century. _Elegant Etiquette_ is a lively, occasionally tongue-in-cheek and thoroughly detailed history of nineteenth century manners and conduct.
Drawing upon research into contemporary advice and guidance, _Elegant Etiquette_ is both fun and compelling reading for anyone with an interest in this period. In exploring the expectations of behaviour and etiquette, it seeks to bring the world of the nineteenth century back to life.
