Gentlemen – make sure your conduct is up to scratch! From advice on how to treat ladies, how to behave at a party and rules for travelling abroad, this handy nineteenth century guidebook will provide entertaining nuggets of wisdom. Ever wondered what to do in polite society if you find an insect in your food? Or how a gentleman should ask a lady to dance? And what on earth is the etiquette for smoking cigars?   First published in 1860, Cecil B. Hartley’s classic guide to gentlemanly behaviour is a veritable mine of information and indispensable advice for aspiring gentlemen. No matter if a man finds himself at a party, meeting someone new or travelling abroad, he has but to leaf through this book to learn how best to behave, and indeed how not to behave. And if he can find time between his numerous invitations to balls and hunting parties, he could benefit from a perusal of the sections on gentlemanly deportment and conversational technique. Not forgetting, of course, the all-important advice on how to treat ladies, surely an integral part of any true gentleman’s training.   Published here in a stunning edition alongside The Ladies’ Book of Etiquette, this is the perfect gift for the would-be gentleman in your life. While it’s an excellent volume for dipping into for hilarious nuggets of outdated advice, this guide also contains advice on all manner of topics, from beard-keeping to chivalry, that are just as relevant today as they were in Cecil B. Hartley’s time. As he says himself:    ‘Once a gentleman always a gentleman’ and be sure that you can so carry out the rule, that in your most careless, joyous moments, when freest from the restraints of etiquette, you can still be recognizable as a gentleman by every act, word, or look.

    Pressure cookers have been around for quite some time. In 1679, a French physicist and mathematician Denis Papin made the first version of the pressure cooker, (though he called it a steam digester at that time) with a large cast iron vessel and a lid that would fit tightly and then could be locked, completely sealing the cooker. In the earlier versions there was no safety valve and once during a demonstration of the pressure cooker it burst and that is how Papin came up with the safety valve. Over the years pressure cookers have evolved greatly and today we see modernized versions of the earlier pressure cooker, which are smaller in size and much safer to use. Due to an increased safety, they are highly popular amongst chefs.
