"Don't look at things solely from a man's point of view. Put yourself in your wife's place and see how you would like some of the things she has to put up with." Originally published in 1913, Don'ts for Husbands provides advice that's as equally compelling as its companion, Don'ts for Wives. In this comical, enlightening, and historical booklet, Blanche Ebbutt shifts sides of the marital equation, delivering advice, "some of which still rings true today,” to help shape a proper and successful husband. Offering tips on "General Habits," "Jealousy," "Food," and many more timeless topics, Don'ts for Husbands is the perfect gift for anyone interested in the evolution of society, and who ultimately loves to laugh. In addition to Don'ts for Wives, a third installment in this series, Don'ts for Mothers, is also available from Cosimo Classics.

The art of being a good husband is not an easy one. This little guide was written for the middle classes of the 1930s who were reading one of the first modern self-help books. Illustrated with contemporary line-drawings, it contains advice by turns delightfully arcane and timelessly true, for example:Don’t squeeze the tube of toothpaste from the top instead of from the bottom. This is one of the small things of life that always irritates a careful wife.Don’t think that your wife has placed waste-paper baskets in the rooms as ornaments.Don’t tell your wife terminological inexactitudes, which are, in plain English, lies. A woman has wonderful intuition for spotting even minor departures from the truth.Do cultivate the habit of coming down to breakfast with a smile. Remember that as the head of the house, it is your duty to see that everyone starts the day in an atmosphere of happiness.Don’t criticise the food at your own table when you are entertaining and especially refrain from doing so before the servants.

Don'ts for Husbands and Don'ts for Wives were republished by A&C Black in 2007 and have sold more than one million copies to date. The advice contained in Don'ts for Cricketers was originally printed in 1888 and 1906 and contains hundreds of snippets of entertaining, timeless and amusing advice for cricketers of all abilities. The advice, ranging from technique and equipment to etiquette on the field, provides an entertaining snapshot of life in early twentieth-century Britain. On batting mentality: 'Don't be in two minds about how you are going to play the ball, for that way madness lies.' On batting technique: 'Don't fail to keep the ball down in driving, for you run great risk of being caught. Of course, the "high drive" is an extremely pretty stroke.' On bowling mentality: 'Don't be sulky or sad if your bowling is punished or your captain takes you off bowling when you want to continue.' On bowling technique: 'Don't bend your elbow; it is not pleasant to be called for "throwing" when you are bowling in a match.' On fielding: 'Don't forget the old story of the famous cricketer who scored 125 for the Gentlemen of England, but dropped so many catches that at the end of the day he was adjudged to owe his side 95 runs!' On the essence of the game: 'Don't forget the motto of that famous old cricket club, I Zingari: "Keep your promise, keep your temper, keep your wicket up."'

Following the success of Don'ts for Husbands and Don'ts for Wives a brand new old collection of advice for couples from courtship to the honeymoon. On looking for a partner in life: "Don't single out a girl if you do not intend to propose to her, for the way in which your conduct is regarded will be greatly influenced by your banking account" On The Question: "Don't rush but chose an auspicious moment, A man who tries to propose when a servant is expected to arrive with a scuttle of coals is not likely to meet with much favour." On the Engagement: "Don't allow awkward pauses to break the conversation because your thoughts and eyes are hungrily trying to follow your lover, who is manfully assisting the hostess." On Planning The Event: "Don't forget that elderly bridesmaids in youthful frocks and girlish hats are ridiculous to the unthinking, and pathetic to those who look below the surface." On Gifts: "Don't be thoughtless - Good silver is always a joy, but remember the young wife with only one servant will have to rub up her own silver backed brushes and sweetmeat dishes if she wants them to look nice." The Honeymoon: "Don't indulge in a long honeymoon. Undisturbed possession soon palls, and man was made for something more virile than perpetual billing and cooing."

Following the success of Don'ts for Husbands and Don'ts for Wives a brand new old collection of advice: - from Birth to Weaning - the care of Young Children - Boyhood and Girlhood "Don't wash the baby in hot water, it would weaken and enervate the babe, and thus predispose him to disease. Luke warm rain water will be the best to wash him with." "Don't choose a wetnurse of a consumptive habit. Check if she or any of her family have laboured under "king's evil" ascertaining if there be any seams or swellings about her neck" "Don't rock an infant to sleep, it might cause him to fall into a feverish, disturbed slumber, but not into a refreshing, calm sleep. Besides, if you once take to that habit he will not go to sleep without it." "Don't add either gin or oil of peppermint to the babe's food. It is a murderous practice" "Don't purge an infant during teething or any other time. IF WE LOCK UP THE BOWELS, WE CONFINE THE ENEMY, AND THUS PRODUCE MISCHIEF"

Illustrated with contemporary line-drawings, it contains advice by turns delightfully arcane and timelessly true, for example:It is a wife’s duty to look her best. If you don’t tidy yourself up, when you have done the bulk of the day’s work, don’t be surprised if your husband begins to compare you unfavourably with the typist at the office.Don’t forget that a wife can always set the standard of behaviour for the home. If she allows laxities of dress or conversation at the table she will soon find that they become a fixed procedure.Don’t forget that very true remark that while face powder may catch a man, baking powder is the stuff to hold him.Don’t criticise the food at your own table when you are entertaining and especially refrain from doing so before the servants.After all is said and done, husbands are not terribly difficult to manage.
