MANNERS & RULES of GOOD SOCIETY (1902) 26th Edition. Hardback
manners and rules of good society – or solecisms to be avoided
by a member of the aristocracy.
A fantastic snapshot of Victorian and Edwardian society and how one was expected to behave.
Wonderful reading – it covers literally every aspect of society of the period and details in great length the way social situations should be handled –
Ladies are not supposed to require a second glass of wine at dessert, and passing the decanters is principally for the gentlemen. If a lady should require a second glass of wine at dessert, the gentleman seated next to her would fill her glass; she should not help herself to wine.
