Exterior as shown in photo, still looks very nice. Text is clean and complete, albeit lightly tanned due to age and pulp content of paper. No torn, loose or missing pages. Nice example of this rare 19th-century household and domestic guide.
This rare antique book is a delightful compendium of all things domestic in the Victorian era - cookery, embroidery, home decoration, the art of housekeeping, crochet, macramé, and ladies' fancy work, parlor games and amusements for entertaining the family and guests, family health and medicine, beauty and grooming, and of course social etiquette. It is a compact but thick volume, 544 pages in length, crammed with information and illustrations - 189 illustrations in all. The cookery section alone is large enough to comprise a full cookbook! THE AMERICAN DOMESTIC CYCLOPEDIA is at once an informative and helpful how-to guide and a social document attesting to everything that was important to homemakers in the late 19th century. An attempt has been made, in the compilation of the book, to include every subject in which woman is interested, wherein information of a practical nature can be imparted through printed instructions.
It may be said that the work is an epitome of nearly all that may be learned from books upon the twin subjects of housekeeping and homemaking. Nor has the social side of woman's existence been neglected, as a perusal of the excellent departments of "Etiquette and "Home Amusements will abundantly testify. The mission of the book is to lighten the cares and the burdens and to multiply the pleasures and enjoyments of home. Treat yourself to this all-in-one domestic library from the golden years of the Victorian period! Whether you want to spice up tomorrow's dinner with a surprising taste of yesterday, or add some 19th-century flair to your 21st-century household, THE AMERICAN DOMESTIC CYCLOPEDIA is the book for you.
