Review: Manners for Women by Mrs. Humphry

Synopsis: Written by the same Mrs. Humphry that wrote Manners for Men in 1897, this is a short, little list of proper behaviors for proper young women.

Review: While this is interesting from the viewpoint of what was considered proper behavior in 1897, it only gives vague instructions. I enjoyed reading the menus (except most were in French). But other than learning how to leave a visiting card and that I would fail miserably if ever presented to the Queen, there wasn't much else in the book. I rather prefer Emily Post for instructions on the manners.
