Stepping way out of my element with a late 18th Century French novel.

And by element, I mean Victorian to modern-day era American-set literature, that's not a romance novel.

The biggest problem I'm having is I'm not sure what to search for. I mean, I know what to look for in the case of buildings, clothing, and furniture, but what about the popular mannerisms of the nobility at the time? How do I best search for information on the customs of the era, the social mores, the stigmas?

Basically I'm just confused on what specific words to search with in something like Google , and for the life of me I can't fathom what to even try. Any and all help would be appreciated.
