From this article: https://www.mimimatthews.com/2018/11/25/victorian-dining-etiquette-common-sense-advice-for-eating-in-company/

Here are a couple of the sources cited:

Etiquette for Gentlemen; or Short Rules and Reflections for Conduct in Society. Philadelphia: Lindsay & Blakiston, 1847. https://archive.org/details/etiquetteforgen00gentgoog/page/n16

Etiquette for Ladies: A Manual of the Most Approved Rules of Conduct in Polished Society for Married and Unmarried Ladies. Philadelphia: J. & J. L. Gihon, 1843. https://archive.org/details/cihm_43267/page/n7

Hartley, Cecil B. The Gentlemen’s Book of Etiquette and Manual of Politeness. Boston: J. S. Locke & Company, 1874. https://archive.org/details/gentlemensbooke01hartgoog/page/n5

Young, John. Our Deportment: Or, the Manners, Conduct, and Dress of the Most Refined Society. Springfield: W. C. King & Co., 1882. https://archive.org/details/ourdeportmentor02youngoog/page/n19

I haven't checked Gutenberg to see if they're there. Portions of these might be fun for a nonfiction collection, or just do the whole thing as a project!
