George Washington's Rules of Civility & Decent Behaviour in Company and Conversation. ISBN: 978-1-55709-103-1. Copyright Edition 1988. Personal sized hardcover edition with 30 pages.
George Washington exhibited notable manners throughout his life. In Washington's time, diligence in social matters was common practice in decent society throughout the world. At age 14, he wrote down 110 rules which were drawn from an English translation of a French book of maxims. The "Rules" were intended to polish manners, keep alive the best affections of the heart, impress the obligation of moral virtues, teach how to treat others in social relations, and above all, inculcate the practice of a perfect self-control. All 110 rules are in this small volume with red leatherette cover.
