If you do not understand what I am talking about in my description below, please don't bother contacting me or putting a bid in. You would be waisting both of our times.
If you cannot write exceptionally in English, please do not bid.
am looking for a book to discuss items that would be taught in charm school. Basically unwritten codes of having wealth and class, being a gentleman. This book is designed for men.
Topics to include are the history behind gentlemen and chivalry, history behind manors and etiquette. Why was this taught? Why was it glorified? Why is it still relevant today? Where did Please/Thank You come from?
Please primarily go over an extensive list of "rules", do's and don't's.
Item's like "A lady always walks up the stairs first in case she falls, you are behind her to catch her." or "A man always goes down the stairs first in case she falls, you are there to catch her." or "A Gentleman never puts on his coat inside the restaurant because particles from the coat could contaminate the food" "A gentleman doesn't deliver a toast until everyone at his table has liquid in their cup and every lady in the room does as well"
The when and how of Table Manners, Toasts, Tributes, Writing Thank You Letters, How to Properly Introduce people depending on level of importance
I think you are starting to get the idea. I would like this to be as robust and educational as possible. Please stay away from your typical, "a gentleman holds the door open for a lady and says please and thank you." I have no problem discussing these things, where it originated, etc. but I want to get past what most people know, I want to talk about what people just aren't taught anymore. What the wealthy 1 percent still teach their children of dynasty families.
