Essential for understanding Victorian way of life, this is a very interesting book on the code of manners of Victorian behavior. This book is about life in the Victorian World when the British Empire never slept or the sun never set on it. America in the Victorian World was still a colony and indeed wanting to become it's own in identity.
The book plays an important role in explaining that the rules and manner system of America was very similar to the British at least in the old families of Boston and Philadelphia. This highly entertaining little book is great for those just starting to learn about the Victorian culture.

Though it is sometimes used for the American nineteenth century, you tend to assume it means the British. I have a memory that one was reprinted a year or so back as a Christmas gimmick. Does this book cover Proper Formal Seating Arrangements? If not, I can explain.
