Made in England

Subtitled: Improprieties more or less prevalent in Conduct & Speech, this delightful 112-page paperback was originally published in 1880, nearing the end of the Victorian era. It is reproduced in authentic style, and is in its 15th printing - although as it is a facsimile reproduction, its cover tells us it is the 2nd edition. Over 150,000 copies sold!

The instructions within are such as:

  • Don't decorate your shirt front with egg or coffee deposits.
  • Don't drink from your saucer.
  • Don't play the accordion ... to excess.
  • Don't forget to raise your hat to every lady acquaintance you meet.
  • Don't fail to heed all the Don'ts in this little book.

Perhaps you think the injunctions are not needed in your care. This is true of many of them no doubt; but the rest of us are not perfect in manners any more than anything else.
