Covering all these nineteenth century dilemmas and more, this book is your must-have guide to the etiquette of our well-heeled forebears.

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.
