Don't: A Manual of Mistakes & Improprieties

Product Code: DONZZEYR14


It's amazing how many faux pas you can commit without even realising it! In fact, pay too much attention to the author of this priceless little volume and you'll be reaching for the valerian before you know it. A perfect present for anyone with a smart-casual approach to life … and a sense of humour, of course.

"Don't make a pronounced attempt at correctness of manner; don't be vulgar, but don't, on the other hand, show that you are trying hard not to be vulgar. It is better to make mistakes than to be obviously struggling not to make them."


96pp facsimile softback edition, plus eight pages of advertisements.First published 1880.
