Book from Grandmother's quilt box

Conroe, TX(Zone 9a)

I have a book that I found in my Grandmother's quiltbox. It is small Aprox. 6"w x 10" tall. It has the original cover and it is well worn at the binding. The book is intact but it has been used. On the cover it says:

HANDBOOK FOR LADIES

Containing

Etiquette of Courtship & Marriage.

The Language of Flowers

The Toilette.

1/"
London
William Stevens, 421, Strand, W.C.

I can't find a date on it anywhere.

Not all books have publishing dates; this is especially true for books published before the mid-to-late nineteenth century. You might try "googling" the publisher's name or the titles you mentioned. Without photographs of the book and its title page it would be really difficult to estimate its age. Hope this helps.

I did try googling the title but wasn't able to find anything that sounded like this book. I will try googling the publisher. Thanks.
