This book is like a practical guide to how things were done long before modern life conveniences were available.
The Household Discoveries portion covers everything from household furnishings and decoration to washing and ironing to tanning leather, dentistry and hairdressing, adhesives, paints, and varnishes.
Mrs. Curtis’s Cook Book is a comprehensive cookbook, with appendices like Preparation of Vegetables for the Table by Maria Parloa.
The book in good shape for its age with no rips or tears. Please note the wear on the cover and the random spotting on the pages, unattached index page as shown in photos.
Please use pictures as a guide. Have any questions or need more photos, ask.
We source from local estate sales in the Great Lakes Bay Region, only purchasing the highest quality books.
