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

24 editions published between 1861 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,243 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
