Common Courtesy: In Which Miss Manners Solves the Problem That Baffled Mr. Jefferson

By Martin, Judith

New York: Atheneum, 1985. When I had the honor of giving Harvard University's John M. Olin Distinguished Lecture, from which this slender volume is derived, I became only the second scholar from the rigorous discipline of etiquette to address that otherwise distinguished center of learning. My mission ...is to call attention to the need for a philosophically acceptable and aesthetically pleasing standard of American etiquette. In my humble way, I only wish to finish the task at which our Founding Fathers failed. It is my hope that this small treatise will cure the historic ills of American society. If not, it has at least already enabled me to endow, at Harvard, the Miss Manners Champagne Fund for Parched Political Philosophers so that my successors at the lectern are immediately refreshed for their efforts. Miss Manners has long held the belief that champagne is a major civilizing influence, not to mention an invaluable tool in softening up those who resist acknowledging the importance of etiquette as an academic discipline. 76p. Marbled endpapers A delightful book on fine paper that wouild make a nice gift. 1st US Edition. Hardcover. As New/Glassine.

Cambridge MA: Belknap Press/Harvard U.P., 1990.

A History of Private Life - I : From Pagan Rome to Byzantium

By Perrott, Michelle; Arier, Philippe & Duby, Georges [eds]

Cambridge MA: Belknap Press/Harvard U.P., 1987. First of the widely celebrated and sumptuously illustrated series, this book reveals in intimate detail what life was really like in the ancient world. Behind the vast panorama of the pagan Roman empire, the reader discovers the intimate daily lives of citizens and slaves—from concepts of manhood and sexuality to marriage and the family, the roles of women, chastity and contraception, techniques of childbirth, homosexuality, religion, the meaning of virtue, and the separation of private and public spaces. The emergence of Christianity in the West and the triumph of Christian morality with its emphasis on abstinence, celibacy, and austerity is startlingly contrasted with the profane and undisciplined private life of the Byzantine Empire. Using illuminating motifs, the authors weave a rich, colorful fabric ornamented with the results of new research and the broad interpretations that only masters of the subject can provide.
