Pryor Publication replica booklets are printed and reproduced as close as possible to the original copy.
Originally published in 1897 this book contains a number of food-related chapters, with advice on dinners and parties, and proper conduct at clubs and restaurants. Includes specific menu suggestions for wedding receptions and various theme parties. This peculiar rule book will greatly amuse modern readers with its rundown of the enormous number of slight missteps that could condemn one to shunning by polite society. Though few lessons here are still applicable to today's casual culture, the book remains a curious glimpse into society and the role of women at the turn of the 20th century.
The accompanying publication also from the same year, 1897, Manners For Men is also available from our online shop.
