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.
