New Exhibit in Hillman Library

Etiquette is a dynamic and ever-changing system of codified rules of appropriate human behavior, which includes civil discourse, polite conversation, fashion, manners, and humor and wit. This exhibit has been curated by the Special Collections Department and features works of etiquette from the Darlington, Nesbitt, and Picchi collections written from the 16th century to the present and is arranged as follows: a sampler of Italian and English works, an American sampler, a children’s literature sampler, an etiquette sampler for adults, and a sampler of women writers of etiquette.
