Short book featuring brief excerpts from 19th century American etiquette books. Unfortunately, many of the excerpts lack citations, and editorial text is mixed in so it's hard to tell what text is from what era. Though the introduction references the Colonial period and a 1701 etiquette book, the few cited books date from 1830s and 1880s.
