Full Notes

As you will notice, a new page has appeared on this site entitled ‘Full Notes’. It contains an 83-page PDF with all of the notes on etiquette that I took during the course of this project, many of which never made it into the compendium itself.

I hope that by making these notes available to other scholars, I may facilitate greater academic interest and research ease in this genre.




Welcome to the Silver Fork Etiquette Guide, a product of the Hunterian Associates Programme at the University of Glasgow.

Please see the ‘About’ tab for full details about this project, as well the ‘Table of Contents’ tabs for a list of all the subjects covered in this guide. Enjoy all of the fascinating, ridiculous, snobbish, decadent, and amazing advice from the early nineteenth century.
