THE SUCCESSFUL HOUSEKEEPER A Manual of Universal Application. Especially Adapted to the Every Day Wants of American Housewives. Embracing Several Thousand Thoroughly Tested and Approved Recipes, Care and Culture of Children, Birds and House Plants; Flower and Window Gardening, Etc. With Many Valuable Hints on Home Decoration. Published in 1883 by M.
8.5 x 6.5 original Victorian binding. Illustrated in color and black and white. The exterior has taken on a dark patina over time due to aging of the "oil-cloth" binding (a treatment publishers added to help cookbooks resist moisture and kitchen stains). Inner hinges have glue repairs. Pages are generally clean and complete.
Light foxing/toning, some slight spatters. No torn, loose or missing pages.
Several lined pages bound in, filled with handwritten recipes. Still a very useful example of this rare and valuable Victorian cookbook.
Here is a rare treasury of Victorian cookery and household expertise. It contains more than 800 cooking recipes and more than 300 household receipts, and is illustrated with full-page color plates and other black and white illustrations. The emphasis of the book is on the cookery recipes, but youll also find chapters on table-setting, napkin-folding, parlor games, child rearing, health and beauty, home decoration, sewing and laundry, pets such as canaries and aquariums, even how to keep rats out of the pantry! Not to mention a chapter on "Camping Out, " which was all the rage in Victorian times.Our aim is to assist the management of the Household, but especially we would enter our plea for improved cookery In this department we have endeavored to give only those recipes which have stood the test of actual use and received the endorsement of the best cooks and caterers of the day, and all of them can be depended upon as being just what they purport to be. The most worthless unit in a family is an ill-managing wife, or an indolent woman of any sort. If she knows nothing of her kitchen, and is at the mercy of the cook, the table will soon become intolerable bad soup, soft and flabby fish, meat burned outside and raw within. The husband will soon fly from the Barmecide feast, and take refuge in his club, where he will not only find food that he can digest, but at the same time escape from the domestic discord that usually accompanies ill-cooked victuals at home. My own wife glared at me when I read it to her! Besides the cooking recipes, we have added other such information as is of importance to every housekeeper. In its completeness we known present THE SUCCESSFUL HOUSEKEEPER to a discriminating public, with the hope that it may make easier the burden and more pleasant the cares of the over-burdened wives and mothers of our land. Without further ado, I give you my own summary of the contents of THE SUCCESSFUL HOUSEKEEPER offerings, rendered more reader-friendly by yours truly. Takes a bit more time but Ive had some nice notes from eBayers telling me they appreciate it. And for those who dont, the book also features a full, 11-page index at the back.
