Kevin Steele: "In this tongue-in-cheek miniature book, recently accepted into the permanent collection of the Kinsey Institute, suggestions on social etiquette with the opposite sex are contrasted with naughty illustrations in which the subjects have bypassed all formality of manners, in varying states of undress. Text excerpts are from social etiquette books, 1847-1950. Illustrations are from French spot and romance illustrations, from the same era."
