This historic marriage advice book from the 1930s aimed at middle-class British couples has been delightfully reproduced by the Bodleian Library for the enjoyment of modern couples. How to Be a Good Husband is filled with nuggets of guidance and gems of wisdom that are, by turn, either delightfully arcane or timelessly true.

Husbands are not terribly difficult to manage, but if your man needs to cultivate the habit of coming down to breakfast with a smile, this is the perfect gift for him. He'll discover some of the small things of life that always irritates a careful wife, many of which are still as remarkably relevant as the day they were written.
