A vintage light-hearted guide to the fraught battlefield of bedroom etiquette ... Ever wanted to know how to avoid horrifying your husband with your nightly toilette? Or avoid incurring the wrath of your wife when creeping home late at night? First published in the 1930s, the humorous advice in 'Bed Manners' reveals the rules of bedroom etiquette, including whose responsibility it is to investigate strange sounds, how to make morning conversation, and coping with a bedfellow who kicks, snores or steals all the covers.
