Short Hints on Social Etiquette, published as a promotional piece by a Philadelphia soap manufacturer, strives to bring "aristocratic" values into the "republican" home by including descriptions of lavish meals, advice on proper word pronunciation, and illustrations of tasteful calling cards. Interspersed throughout both books are illustrated advertisements that reveal the level of consumerism begun in the 1880s."--BOOK JACKET.

Bowing to Necessities
Language: en
Pages: 320
Authors: C. Dallett Hemphill
Categories: History
Type: BOOK - Published: 1999-09-23 - Publisher: Oxford University Press

Anglo-Americans wrestled with some profound cultural contradictions as they shifted from the hierarchical and patriarchal society of the seventeenth-century frontier to the modern and fluid class democracy of the mid-nineteenth century. How could traditional inequality be maintained in the socially leveling environment of the early colonial wilderness? And how could nineteenth-century Americans pretend to be equal in an increasingly unequal society? Bowing to Necessities argues that manners provided ritual solutions to these central cultural problems by allowing Americans to act out--and thus reinforce--power relations just as these relations underwent challenges. Analyzing the many sermons, child-rearing guides, advice books, and etiquette manuals that taught Americans how to behave, this book connects these instructions to individual practices and personal concerns found in contemporary diaries and letters. It also illuminates crucial connections between evolving class, age, and gender relations. A social and cultural history with a unique and fascinating perspective, Hemphill's wide-ranging study offers readers a panorama of America's social customs from colonial times to the Civil War.
The Oxford Handbook of Music Listening in the 19th and 20th Centuries

Pages: 352

An idealized image of European concert-goers has long prevailed in historical overviews of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. This act of listening was considered to be an invisible and amorphous phenomenon, a naturally given mode of perception. This narrative influenced the conditions of listening from the selection of repertoire to the construction of concert halls and programmes. However, as listening moved from the concert hall to the opera house, street music, and jazz venues, new and visceral listening traditions evolved. In turn, the art of listening was shaped by phenomena of the modern era including media innovation and commercialization. This Handbook asks whether, how, and why practices of music listening changed as the audience moved from pleasure gardens and concert venues in the eighteenth century to living rooms in the twentieth century, and mobile devices in the twenty-first. Through these questions, chapters enable a differently conceived history of listening and offer an agenda for future research.

"The Ladies Book of Etiquette was designed and produced during the Spring of 2021 at The University of Alabama. The text contained in this book comes from an 1860 etiquette manual of the same name, written by Florence Hartley and originally published by G.W. Cottrell. This text is accessible in full through Project Gutenburg. The book is composed of 12 half-linen napkins, each of which was individually cut and stitched in my living room during the COVID-19 pandemic with the generous help of Cam Fowler. The typeface used throughout the book is Baskerville." -- Colophon
