Wilson, John Lyde: The Code of Honor, v.1, 16 November 2008.

The Code of Honor;
Or Rules for the Government of Principals and Seconds in Duelling
By John Lyde Wilson (1784–1849)


From the Introduction:
“Originally this was published by the author (1784–1849), a former governor of South Carolina, as a 22-page booklet, in 1838. Before his death he added an appendix of the 1777 Irish duelling code, but this second edition was not printed until 1858, as a 46-page small book, still sized to fit in the case with one’s duelling pistols. This code is far less blood-thirsty than many might suppose, but built on a closed social caste and standards of behavior quite alien to today.”

I found the text irresistible when I noticed that the file was titled: “The Project Gutenberg Ebook, The Cod of Honor.htm”
