Etiquette from 1883: Behold a treasure beyond words. A treasure of useful and entertaining knowledge from our ancestors regarding speech manners, toasts, courtship, penmanship, lady and gentleman etiquette and more. The book listing states:
Etiquette guides published during the late 1800s guided the Victorian population in how to conduct themselves in all social and private situations. They lived in a romantic era where chivalry and gentility were prized and honored. Many good manners are universal, and many rules of etiquette that were once based on a moral principle may continue to exist today. Many of the rules of Victorian times seem completely ridiculous in the 21st century. There were strict codes on all modes of behavior from how to walk down the street to how to eat fruit “ever so elegantly”, how to sit properly or ride in a carriage, what a man’s role was versus a woman’s role in courtship and marriage, the appropriate arrangement of the items on a dinner table and the order of the food service. This Victorian Etiquette book is full of interesting descriptions and illustrations of days gone by Forms of Invitations
Jacqueline Bisset was a babe in this 1972 film called Stand Up and Be Counted about a newspaper reporter covering women’s liberation in her hometown. A true feminist story. The original movie poster is up for grabs so hop on it.
