I’ve been collecting ettiquette books for some 40 years.
I’d like to say it has improved my behavior but really I just know trivial information like which fork to use and what to wear motoring. (Yes, motoring.)
My oldest book was published in 1913 (although I thought I had one from the 1880s). The newest one is Miss Manners.
Since I have 13 books I thought I’d look through each one, give some ettiquette pointers from the contents from time to time.
I’m sure some of the tips will be archaic while others, even though from a time well-past, could be of good use.
Ta ta for now.
What do you collect? Where is your collection? (Mine was in the attic.)
