|From the inside leaf:
How to pay and return formal “calls”; how to refuse a proposal of marriage; how to lead off the dancing at a country-house ball; what to wear for a morning walk… Today such social niceties are forgotten, but they are explored and dealt with in this highly original book.
Written as if intended for Jane Austen’s original readers in the regency era, and illustrated with exquisitely witty watercolours, Jane Austen’s Guide to Good Manners is a light-hearted, entertaining and instructive little handbook of etiquette. It not only offers sound advice and pearls of wisdom, but also encourages the modern reader to look at Jane Austen’s work with a new and deepened appreciation.
