Decorum: The behavior of keeping in good taste and propriety. The Victorian times were much more than just an era.They were a lifestyle that revolved around culture,politics,religion,entertainment and events,fashion and architecture. To feel at ease in any of these arenas one had to be well informed and up to date on social and private forms of etiquette. This is the book that helped many men and women acquire the self esteem and confidence to do just so.The contents to name just a few covered,entrances into society,introductions,conversations, dinner parties and balls,traveling,servants,home duties,weddings,and my personal favorite Washington etiquette.There is also a wonderful long chapter on toilet recipes for beauty and fashion.Another area the gilded age was known for was it's marvelous and beautiful art of book binding and covers. This is one of those lovelies.Bound in cloth and decorated with intricate detailing that tells a story all by it self. This edition is in very good condition with all 414 pages accounted for,it is clean and binding is tight.A work of art on the outside that should be displayed as such.And enough information on the inside to turn yourself into a walking and talking Victorian work of art.Enjoy!
