"If you are so unfortunate as to have contracted the low habit of smoking, be careful to practise it under certain restrictions"

With nineteenth-century fashions constantly changing, but the importance of the baffling social codes entirely rigid, a newly-prosperous and bewildered middle class was in dire need of careful guidance and advice. With the help of his mysterious lady friend, Charles William Day has a kind-hearted mission: "If these 'hints' save the blush upon one cheek, or smooth the path into 'society' of only one honest family, the object of the author will be attained." Here is a book which walks the hopeful reader through the finer details of dining, smoking, dancing, flirting, card-playing, walking and talking.

Hints on Etiquette is part of 'Found on the Shelves', published with The London Library. The books in this series have been chosen to give a fascinating insight into the treasures that can be found while browsing in The London Library.
