Mrs Beeton's book of household management by Beeton( Book )

241 editions published between 1861 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 1,235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A founding text of Victorian middle-class identity, Household Management is today one of the great unread classics. Written when its author was only 22, it offered highly authoritative advice on subjects as diverse as fashion, child-care, animal husbandry, poisons, and the management of servants. To the modern reader expecting stuffy moralizing and watery vegetables, Beeton's book is a revelation: it ranges widely across the foods of Europe and beyond, actively embracing new food stuffs and techniques, mixing domestic advice with discussions of science, religion, class, industrialism, and gender roles. Alternately fashionable and frugal, anxious and blusteringly self-confident, Household Management highlights the concerns of the ever-expanding Victorian middle class at a key moment in its history." "This abridged edition does justice to its high status as a cookery book, while also suggesting ways of approaching this massive, hybrid text as a significant document of social and cultural history."--Jacket

"No home is complete without this classic guide to cookery and home management. The ideal gift book, it contains hundreds of recipes, full menus and hints for cooks. Beeton's Book of Household Management also provides a fascinating insight into the domestic life of the Victorian housewife, with instructions on housekeeping and managing servants, along with astute advice on childrearing. It is no surprise that it has been a constant favourite with homemakers ever since its first appearance in 1861"--Page 4 of cover
