Cookery and Housekeeping. A Manual of Domestic Economy for Large and Small Families. With eight coloured illustrations and numerous woodcuts. Third Edition.

London: Longmans Green and Co., 1882.

Octavo, 540, [2] pages. Illustrated with eight chromo-lithographed plates and woodcuts in the text. Third edition, published in the same year as the first. A Victorian era cookbook aimed at reasonably modest households, with some of the menus containing more elaborate preparations. With an eye to a larger audience she states, "It is hoped that the greater portion of [the recipes] and the early chapters will give help not only in English households, but in those of the United States and in our colonies." Some very light soiling to a few pages, otherwise very near fine, in a bright and handsome brown cloth, stamped in black, red, and pale blue, with just a touch of fading to the spine. [Bitting, page 391; Driver 888.3].
