This is a humorous description of the English Gentleman and his habits. The foreword states that it is for men who want to be gentlemen and for "ladies who wish to be able to recognize the gentleman when they meet one, and to let them know what they are in for should they be reckless enough to marry one." The author describes the gentleman's home (including the details of his lavatory), his club, his attire, his relationships with women, and just about every other aspect of his life. It is a short and amusing book.Note: the automatic recommendations for this book make it seem like a real etiquette book. It's not.
