Written by an anonymous gentlewoman of the period, this book was a popular guide to manners and social customs for the late eighteenth–early nineteenth centuries in England. While devoted mostly to women’s dress, it also covers deportment, movement, propriety, correct dances, and aids to beauty and health—advice that would have been taken very much to heart by women of the time of Jane Austen and Napoleon. For anyone interested in the details of day-to-day life of this period, Regency Etiquette offers a unique look into the mindset and customs of a bygone age.

Editorial Reviews

“Let me hasten to recommend to you a publication at this time in much request and which possesses much unique merit. It is entitled The Mirror of the Graces; or, The English Ladies’ Costume…This book teaches the art of combining a delicate taste with a correct judgment, without either aiding our vanities or infringing on our duties…Read this work with attention, it is really excellent of its order.” Ackermann’s Repository, Volume 5, #29, May 1811
