There are numerous articles and pamphlets from the 19th century on the rules of etiquette and conduct in polite society, and this blog is an opportunity for anyone interested to view them.

The name of the blog 'A Lady's Guide to Etiquette' comes from the fact that many of the articles published on etiquette were signed by simple 'a lady'.

All the information provided here is not my own and the original sources are quoted. If you wish to reproduce any of this information please also quote the original source.

The majority of etiquette guides will be from the 19th century, for exact publication dates see the original source listed at the end of each post.
