Description
Information
First published in 1960 this charming book provides a wealth of practical information on the right thing to do in just about every situation. Hailing from a time when it was not yet fashionable to condemn good manners and courtesy as hypocrisy‚ and social situations were distinct from each other with specific codes of conduct‚ Etiquette is both a delightful insight into the social mores of the '60s and a guide to good manners that is still relevant today.

Chapters cover the problems involved in letter writing; sending out invitations; striking up conversation; telephone conversations; flat sharing; entertaining friends‚ business acquaintances - and their children; correct behaviour on a first date and even how to organise a wedding.

Etiquette is part of a series of Collins Nutshell Books which cover hobbies‚ sports‚ practical activities and leisure-time interests of many kinds. Originally produced in the '60s‚ Collins Nutshell Books‚ recall a bygone era which flourished on the knowledge that many interests make for a happy life and that leisure means much more than watching television.
