This book analyzes English social and occupational behavioural ideals from the courtesy book's demise in 1774 to the Medical Act's passage in 1858. Ideals from conduct and etiquette books mix with those displayed by professional groups, particularly medical practitioners, in this analysis of class relations. The book draws upon a wide array of sources including manners literature, novels, poetry, memoirs, satirical prints and portraits. It should be useful for historians as well as those interested in how individuals establish personal identity and infuse confidence into human relations in an impersonal, urban society.
