Excerpt from The New Cyclopædia of Domestic Economy, and Practical Housekeeper
The importance of the subjects introduced, and their influence upon the happiness of the household, constitute a sufficient claim for a favorable reception of this volume; for, though many books have been written on domestic affairs, yet no treatise so complete in all its parts, within the limits of a convenient manual, has been given to the public before the appearance of this work. In many matters beside cookery does the inexperienced housewife need instruction and guidance. It has been a study, in this volume, to reduce to practical rules the best theories concerning an extensive and varied range of household duties, and to furnish simple and useful directions in each branch of this most interesting of sciences, that the work might be safely consulted in all matters relating to the manifold responsibilities of the housekeeper.
