The Gentlemen's Book of Etiquette - The Manual of Politeness by Cecil B. Hartley - The Gentlemen's Book of Etiquette, The Manual of Politeness Being A complete guide for a gentleman's conduct in all his relations towards society. Containing Rules for the etiquette to be observed in the street, at table, in the ball room, evening party, and morning call; with full directions for polite correspondence, dress, conversation, manly exercises, and accomplishments. From the best French, English, and American authorities. One of the first rules for a guide in polite conversation, is to avoid political or religious discussions in general society. Such discussions lead almost invariably to irritating differences of opinion, often to open quarrels, and a coolness of feeling which might have been avoided by dropping the distasteful subject as soon as marked differences of opinion arose. It is but one out of many that can discuss either political or religious differences, with candor and judgment, and yet so far control his language and temper as to avoid either giving or taking offence. In their place, in circles which have met for such discussions, in a tete a tete conversation, in a small party of gentlemen where each is ready courteously to listen to the others, politics may be discussed with perfect propriety, but in the drawing-room, at the dinner-table, or in the society of ladies, these topics are best avoided."

The young man who makes his first entrance into the world of society, should know how to choose his friends, and next how to conduct himself towards them. Experience is, of course, the best guide, but at first starting this must come second hand, from an older friend, or from books. You may set it down as a rule, that as you treat the world, so the world will treat you. Remember, "once a gentleman always a gentleman," and be sure that you can so carry out the rule, that in your most careless, joyous moments, when freest from the restraints of etiquette, you can still be recognizable as a gentleman by every act, word, or look. To make your politeness part of yourself, inseparable from every action, is the height of gentlemanly elegance and finish of manner.

Genre: Etiquette

Do unto others as you would others should do to you. You can never be rude if you bear the rule always in mind, for what lady likes to be treated rudely? True Christian politeness will always be the result of an unselfish regard for the feelings of others, and though you may err in the ceremonious points of etiquette, you will never be im polite. Politeness, founded upon such a rule, becomes the expression, in graceful manner, of social virtues. The spirit of politeness consists in a certain attention to forms and ceremonies, which are meant both to please others and ourselves, and to make others pleased with us ;a still clearer definition may be given by saying that politeness is goodness of heart put into daily practice; the.re can be no true, politeness without kindness, purity, singleness of heart, and sensibility. Many believe that politeness is but a mask worn in the world to conceal bad passions and impulses, and to make a show of possessing virtues not really existing in the heart; thus, that politeness is merely hypocrisy and dissimulation. Do not believe this; be certain that those who profess such a doctrine are practising themselves the deceit they condemn so much.

Sie werden Forrest Leos unehrenhaften Helden verfallen! London, Pocklington Place, um 1850: Lionel Savage, ein fauler Aristokrat, 22 Jahre alt, Dichter, kann keine Zeile mehr zu Papier bringen, seitdem er geheiratet hat. Fest entschlossen, seiner untragbaren Lage durch Selbstmord zu entkommen, will Savage sich erschießen. Doch dann fällt ihm ein, dass er das seinem treuen Butler Simmons nicht zumuten kann. Man bedenke nur all die Körperflüssigkeiten, die es aufzuwischen gälte. Kaum hat er also den Selbstmordgedanken verworfen, spaziert ein freundlicher Gentleman in sein Arbeitszimmer: der Teufel höchstpersönlich. Der Gentleman ist ein wahrer Bericht, die Gefahren der Liebe und der Ehe, Duelle und Beinahe-Duelle, Dichter und Anarchisten betreffend. Ein Roman, wie er bisher noch nicht geschrieben wurde: exzentrisch, viktorianisch, waghalsig – ein großes Stück Abenteuerliteratur. »In seinem Debütroman gelingt es Leo, die Konventionen viktorianischer Fiktion zu parodieren. Wahnsinnig witzige Dialoge und komische Komplikationen runden die Geschichte ab.« PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

From the Ballroom to Hell collects over 100 little-known excerpts from dance, etiquette, beauty, and fashion manuals from the nineteenth century. Included are instructions for performing various dances, as well as musical scores, costume patterns, and the proper way to hold one's posture, fork, gloves, and fan. While of particular interest to dancers, dance historians, and choreographers, anyone fascinated by the ways and mores of the period will find From the Ballroom to Hell an endearing and informative glimpse of America's past.
