Description

DESCRIPTION: Full title - The Housekeeper's Receipt Book or the Repository of Domestic Knowledge Containing a Compete System of Housekeeping Formed on Principles of Experience and Economy and Adapted to General Use. This is a rather marvellous book covering Part 1 - A system of cookery, Part 2 Cooking for the sick and medicines, Part 3 Brewing, perfumery cleaning and housekeeping. A rather scarce book. OTHER DETAILS BOOK CONDITION: Fair - Leather bound with some scuffing. Front hinge cracked and half loose & rear hinge cracked. The book block is sturdy but there are some marks through use and some foxing. Frontis pages have been drawn on (probably by a child) and the page numbers for p 84, 85 & 97 have the number in crayon next to the printed page number. There is a tear to the illustration page opposite page 1 and to this page. Having said that, the major part of the book is clean and clear. I have tried to be clear about any damage but this is actually not in bad condition for the age. Otherwise clean and sturdy.
