The American Gentleman's Guide to Politeness and Fashion; or, Familiar Letters to his Nephews

Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott, 1866. Hardcover. 8vo, cloth gilt, very good, some wear and soil to covers, contents very good, 480 pp. A revolutionary book in that it was a woman writing under a pseudonym advising men on their proper conduct, including courtship, marriage and housekeeping; and not only that, several narratives in the book show "Henry Lunettes" as a character consorting with women or getting into other situations that require judgment and etiquette, so a rare instance of a woman writing "nonfiction" from a first-person male perspective. Very Good. Item #H13491
