From Kitchen to Garret
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
First published in 1887, this domestic handbook was intended for couples setting up their first home and offers advice on everything from choosing a house to managing servants and resting after the first baby ('nine days in bed ... without putting one's feet to the ground'). The present book is a facsimile of the 1893 revised edition and it offers a glimpse into a bygone era when, for Mrs Panton, the use of feather beds was a 'luxurious' wrong-doing. No jacket.
