Mrs Beeton reigned supreme among the writers of domestic manuals in the Victorian era. Much more than just a cookery book, or even a guide to household management, her Book of Household Management is full of historic and literary anecdotes - she aimed to give her readers a thorough education. Today it is more than just a historical curiosity; as well as a great sourcebook for nineteenth century recipes, it also provides a fascinating insight into the lives of the people of its time and is a thoroughly entertaining read. This is a new edition (not a scan) of the 1861 text; it is unabridged and includes all the original illustrations in black and white.
