What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Publishers' Original Binding, Very Scarce

The first edition of this work.

A very scarce work.

A comprehensive Edwardian guide to housekeeping, very practical and probably the high point of the subject.

Written by Mary Davies.

Six pages of publisher's adverts to the rear.

Condition

In the original publisher's cloth binding. Externally, generally smart. Minor bumping to the head and tail of the spine and to the extremities. Spine and rear board are a little faded. A little rubbing to the joints. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are lightly age-toned and clean.

Very Good
