Product Description

A nice good condition example of ‘MRS BEETON’S HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT, A COMPLETE COOKERY BOOK, that was produced as a New Edition in 1923.

Although first published in 1861, as one of the series of guidebooks published by her husband, Samuel Beeton. The recipes were highly structured, in contrast to those in earlier cookbooks. The ‘New Edition’ was described as: Mrs Beeton has been the guide, philosopher and friend of countless happy homes . Eight years after the first appearance of the book, an enlarged and revised edition was found necessary. Since then the changing years have brought additional information, new features, and increased size, till we find the new edition we are now introducing to the public has nearly twice the number of pages and is four times the size of its modest ancestor” (Preface).

The book includes sections on Household work, Servants duties, Labour saving, Laundry work, Etiquette, Marketing, Carving and trussing, The art of “Using-up”, Table decoration, The Home Doctor, The Nursery, The Home Lawyer, etc. It has 32 plates in colour and some 700 illustrations. It was published by London by Ward, Lock, & Co. Limited, London and Melbourne. The hard cover has original red blind-stamped quarter roan, tan cloth boards, gilt title to spine, advertising endpapers. Condition is good, but with a bit of nibbling to the front inside page.
