What Our Customers Say...

Description

Colour Plates, Folding Plates, Illustrated, Leather Binding

First published in 1861, this extensive guide to managing a Victorian household was a best-selling book. The author passed away in 1865; editions published soon after her death contained an obituary, which was removed in later editions, allowing the illusion that she was still alive and writing the recipes. In reality, much of the contents of the work were plagiarised from other successful Victorian food writers, such as Maria Eliza Rundell and Eliza Acton. By 1907, the work spanned over two thousand pages. By 1868, it had sold nearly two million copies, making it an extremely popular guide, held as standard by many at the time.

Written by Isabella Mary Beeton (1836-1865), an English writer and journalist.
