A best seller in the 1880s - Don’t: A Manual of Mistakes & Improprieties more or less prevalent in Conduct and Speech – is now up to its 15th reprint. And rightly so, with timeless gems such as:
‘Don’t decorate your shirt front with egg or coffee deposits.’
‘Don’t forget to raise your hat to every lady acquaintance you meet.’
‘Don’t fail to heed all the Don’ts in this little book.’
This title is a Pryor Publication – a fascinating collection of 19th and 20th century books, faithfully reprinted from their original copies. Many of the collection’s titles are available at the HHT shop, and make very original (and cheeky) gifts. This one in particular would be great for graduations, housewarmings and engagements – events where the recipient is beginning a new stage of their life and may encounter some new and unexpected Don’ts!
