Excerpt from Manners for Men

In introducing two men to each other the name of the inferior is mentioned first. By the in ferior I mean the younger, the less important, or of lower rank. Suppose one of the two to be a familiar friend, and another a comparatively new acquaintance, then formality requires that the familiar friend shall be introduced to the other, being named first. The reason for this is that one naturally stands more on ceremony with the man one knows least. There may be counteracting circumstances, however, which would tend to reverse this order of things, but as a general rule, the social rank of both being equal, the above holds good.

Never introduce a lady to a gentle man; but always the gentleman to the lady. That is, mention the man's name first, addressing yourself to the woman thus: Allow me to introduce my friend Mr. Smith, Miss Jones. And follow this up immediately by saying, Miss Jones, addressing Mr. Smith as you 'do so. It is a grave solecism to begin by intro ducing the lady. Tyros very naturally conclude that the lady's name should be first mentioned; but on thinking it over they will soon perceive that to do so would infer that she is the lesser consideration of the two.
