Elegant Etiquette in the Nineteenth Century

“It’s written with such a sense of fun… An absolutely wonderful read.” Katie Lumsden, Books and Things. 

“This enjoyable book is packed full of revealing facts and unexpected information.” All About History, April 2018.

‘Mallory James has done a very clever thing here, by making a scholarly guide to etiquette as entertaining and amusing as a work of fiction.’ Jane Austen’s Regency World Magazine, Nov/Dec 2018.

Have you ever wondered what it would have been like to live in the nineteenth century? How would you have got a partner in a ballroom? What would you have done with a letter of introduction? And where would you have sat in a carriage?

Answering all these questions and more, Elegant Etiquette in the Nineteenth Century was published by Pen and Sword Books in November 2017. With wit and vivacity it takes readers on a jaunt back in time, to explore the major and minor points of etiquette which shaped the lives of our well-heeled nineteenth-century forebears.
