Over 1000 pdf pages of good solid advise... if you run a household you need to read this e-book.
The main object of this book is economy. If rightly used, it
will save a great deal of money in every household. It will also
save time and labor, which are the equivalent of money.
The publishers have long felt that there is a great need for
a new book of this sort upon the market. To be sure, there are
a number of standard dictionaries and encyclopedias of applied
science. But these cost from five to ten dollars and upward.
And they contain a great deal of information about commercial
processes not suitable to household use. There are also a number
of popular books of recipes published. But most of these
are old books. Others are made up scrapbook fashion by the
republication of old material without proper editorial supervision.
In the course of the preparation of this volume, our attention
was necessarily called to the fact that a number of so-called
" new " books republish, word for word, recipes and processes
that have been formerly published in six or eight other books,
some of which appeared before the Civil War. Recent science
has introduced many new substances and processes then unknown.
All these have been availed of in the present volume.
. Moreover, the old-fashioned popular book of recipes leaves
something to be desired in its manner as well as its matter. The
enormous sale and reputation of a number of old books that
contain some recipes of great practical value, but accompanied by
comment which no sane person can possibly read without a sense
of humor or a feeling of disgust, is the strongest possible evidence
of the value of this kind of information. We believe that
what has made these old books popular is their practical part
and not their silly part. We believe that the public will approve
a volume that sets forth what to do, how to do, and the reasons
why, in simple, direct, and dignified language, and saves space
for additional recipes and other information by omitting " horseplay
" and all unnecessary remarks and commentaries.
This is a modem book. All who have owned or used one of the old-time books of recipes knxiw that hardly a week passes
that they do not find occasion to refer to it. They will, we believe,
appreciate the importance of having the latest and best
information along these lines obtainable. Others, who have no
good collection of this sort, wiU appreciate without argument
the value of purchasing a new book rather than an old one.
Thus we feel that there is a universal necessity for Household
Discoveries, and we have therefore put the price so low as to
bring it within the reach of every family, in the confident expectation
of distributing at least a million copies throughout the
continent of North America.
