Description

Written by an anonymous gentlewoman of the period, this book was a popular guide to manners and social customs for the late eighteenth-early nineteenth centuries in England. While devoted mostly to women's dress, it also covers deportment, movement, propriety, correct dances, and aids to beauty and health-advice that would have been taken very much to heart by women of the time of Jane Austen and Napoleon. For anyone interested in the details of day-to-day life of this period, Regency Etiquette offers a unique look into the mindset and customs of a bygone age.
