Honore de Balzac's 1830 "Traité de la vie élégante" was a keystone text on dandyism, preceding Jules Barbey d'Aurevilly's Anatomy of Dandyism (1845) and Charles Baudelaire's "The Dandy" (in The Painter of Modern Life, 1863), and marking an important shift from the early dandyism of the British Regency to the intellectual and artistic dandyism of nineteenth-century France.

The Treatise is the first true philosophical expression of dandyism, and is full of well-crafted aphorisms: "Elegant living is, in the broad acceptance of the term, the art of animating repose," runs one classic definition of dandyism, and "One must have studied at least as far as rhetoric to lead an elegant life" asserts the importance of verbal pirouette and dexterous quipping to the dandy.


Paru dans "La mode en 1830", ce traité propose une véritable esthétique de la vie mondaine parisienne à travers une série de petits écrits, mi-railleurs, mi-sceptiques, à l'usage des dandys ou de ceux qui désirent s'initier à la mode.
