Better Bed Manners: A Humorous 1930s Guide to Bedroom Etiquette for Husbands and Wives

In Stock

A charming, humorous guide on nighttime manners for married couples, first published in the 1930s.

The first book on how to be knightly, nightly.

Ever needed tips on how to sleep next to a snoring spouse? How to convalesce in style? Or the etiquette of staying in a haunted house?

This humorous book was originally published in the 1930s as an amusing guide for married couples. Poking fun at wives and husbands in an even-handed manner, it is both witty and quaint, giving a glimpse of middle-class life of a bygone era, but also offering up some universal advice which still rings true today. For example, 'Choose bedside books for their soporific qualities', or, 'one whisky-and-soda on retiring...makes the average man forget the dullest dinner and sends him to bed in a glow of good will.'

With sections on hot-water bottles, robes de nuit, breakfast in bed, the best kind of pillow, sneaking home late and night-time readers, this is the perfect, self-improving gift for your favourite bedfellow.
