The Frugal Housewife. Dedicated to those who are not ashamed of economy. Third Edition. Corrected and arranged by the author. To which is added, Hints to persons of moderate fortune.

Boston: Published by Carter and Hendee, 1830.

Octavo (19 x 12 cm.), 128 pages. Second edition, second printing, styled "Third Edition", with substantial revisions and enlargement. In 1832, the title was changed to The American Frugal Housewife so as to avoid confusion with a Susannah Carter's work of the same name and with an earlier imprint (note Bitting states incorrectly that the name was changed with this second edition). In soiled and edge-rubbed, publisher's printed grey paper-covered boards with brown cloth spine; some wear to spine ends. Some soiling and foxing throughout, otherwise very good. Early inscription to front endpages. [OCLC locates twenty-one copies; Bitting, page 86; Cagle 148; Lowenstein 131].
