Originally published in the late 1800s. Nearly 400 snippets of early advice and invaluable household information recorded in a concise and alphabetical format. The contents include tips and information on almost every aspect of domestic life including health, food, children, pets, pests, livestock etc. Many of the earliest books on health and domestic matters, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Home Farm Books are republishing many of these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
