BRUMMELL & BEAU STAFF    Book Number: 84659    Product format: Hardback

First published in 1900, this reprint is a tongue-in-cheek guide to etiquette for the aristocracy. For guests at the mansions of the nobility, gentry and clergy. Covers preparations for a visit, hints on the selection of invitations, arrival and journey, at the breakfast and dinner table, amusements, hunting and shooting, in the ball room, the precedence of personages, and conversation de Société. In the ballroom: "Mention your name, and apprise her distinctly of fact that you intend to dance with her before putting your arm around her waist." 'In spending a month at an archiepiscopal palace, although sable and gaiters are de rigueur, it is nevertheless advisable, in case of tenant's ball or choir practice, to put in a pair of spotted socks and a practicable shirt-front.' By mixing with the aristocracy, you might be granted (or otherwise obtain) a peerage. 64pp. Line drawings.
