THE BOOK OF HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT
S O BEETON, LONDON 1864 - A scarce book - an early edition of Mrs Beeton's classic. This book is bound in later library buckram, with a tight binding. The frontispiece is missing, and the title page is worn. The preface and General contents are present, but bound out of order. Thereafter the book runs on nearly complete. It contains 9 of the 12 plates called for, and also lacks the following leaves: pp663-666; pp145-146; pp1111-1112 (the final leaf). Nevertheless, the advice on running a home, sending after-dinner invitations and so on are a fabulous insight into the Victorian Era. With complete volumes selling at £450 plus, this one is offered at a lower price to reflect its condition. A very rare volume to get hold of. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
