Diane Publishing Books
Rudiments of Genteel Behavior
Francis Nivelon (au); Paul Holberton (fr); Hugh Belsey (ad)
A facsimile reprint of the unique edition of 1737. This very rare book provides delightful text and images explaining ‘deportment’ for both men and women. The text is remarkably direct, precise and informative. Exactly how you should doff your hat and “retire gracefully from a room” and execute a curtsey are all explained both in theory and practice. There is a great deal here of interest for dancers and performers, students of all human behavior, historians of all kinds -- of art, of society, of costume; this book gives a vivid insight into a lost world of elegance. Technically, this is a ‘courtesy book’, though it inculcates manners without the morals that usually accompanied them. The book was beautifully printed and illustrated with engravings of very high quality.
