Description

This book contains very little information whatsoever on etiquette or correct form. It will not tell you how to eat peas with a fork, how to introduce a lady mayor to a Clerk of Works or what to do with your hat during the playing of the Botswanan national anthem. (Answer: remove it.) It will, however, give you the best quotations on manners for gentlemen from writers between the seventeenth and twentieth centuries (including Lord Chesterfield, William Makepeace Thackeray and William Hazlitt). It will be an invaluable and thought-provoking little book for any Civilised Chap (or Civilised Chappess) looking for timeless wisdom and advice on what makes a true Gentleman.show more
