Why we love this
The Compleat Gentleman: Five Centuries of Aristocratic Life, by Geoffrey Beard. New York: Rizzoli, 1993. First printing. Once respected at home and abroad, the notion of a gentleman is now nearly as redundant as the principles, patriotism, and sense of obligation that once marked these splendid creatures. The author traces the habits and the philosophy behind the notion of a Gentleman and Lady, over the centuries and in different countries.
