Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Think not that you have the right to be idle because you are young."

 

"Of all things, beware of sullenness, melancholy, and ill-humoured silence."

 

"Particularly avoid belching, biting, or cutting your nails, rubbing your teeth and picking your nose and ears in company."

 

"Boys will be boys," the saying goes--but, as this intriguing manual maintains, there is always room for improvement. First published in 1829, it offers forthright advice to young gentlemen in all situations, from encouraging family harmony ("On no account quarrel with your brothers and sisters") to good table manners and conduct at school. Packed with frank and funny observations on boys at work and play, it shows how to navigate the twin perils of "sheepish bashfulness and obtrusive boldness," and hold your own in company with confidence and style.

           

Timeless tips on tidiness, behavior and self-knowledge combine with the social etiquette of two centuries ago in this entertaining and perceptive guide. Manners for Schoolboys, the latest in the British Library's series of vintage reprints, will make an entertaining and amusing read for boys and men whose manners are less than impeccable--as well as anyone who has to be around them.

Synopsis:

Here is the perfect little book for anyone—teenage or otherwise—who has ever wanted to master the art of good table manners. Written by Walter Hoving, former chairman of Tiffany's of New York, it is a step-by-step introduction to all the basics, from the moment the meal begins ("It is customary for the young man to help the young lady on his right to be seated") to the time it ends ("Remember that a dinner party is not a funeral, nor has your hostess invited you because she thinks you are in dire need of food. You're there to be entertaining"). In addition to the essentials about silverware, service, and sociability, it includes many of the fine points, too—the correct way to hold a fish fork, how to eat an artichoke properly, and, best of all, how to be a gracious dining companion.

Concise, witty, and illustrated with humor and style by Joe Eula, this classic guide to good table manners has delighted readers of all ages for more than 50 years.

Synopsis:

Written by the former chairman of Tiffany's, this is a simplified, illustrated guide to basic table manners for anyone--teenaged or not--who'd like to dine correctly. More than a handbook on which fork to use, this small volume explains how to be graceful and sociable when dining out and at home.
