Circa: 1891
Condition: Used
Country of Origin: United States
Publisher: Jewell & Co.
Author: William Edward Stevens
Edition: 1
Pages: 503

This is a hardcover book dated 1891 titled Advice For The Home, Jewell & Co. Chicago. It boasts of being "A work comprehensive in scope and full in detail. With Illustrations. By William Edward Stevens. Chicago: Jewell & Company, 1891" "Entered according to act of Congress, in the year 1891, by E. S. Jewell, in the office of the Librarian of Congress, at Washington"

The book binding itself is ok, so pages are intact and not loose, but it has completely come away from the cover. The pages are darker around the edges and off white. The front blank page has a tear. The interior is in good readable condition and the pages do not seem fragile, nor do they crumble when turned.

Ok, now that I've gotten the problems out of the way, let me tell you that this is one very interesting read. It an an encyclopedia of sorts for the home. To sum it up: "The object of this work, as its title indicates, is to supply, in permanent form, for easy reference, facts which shall constitute a guide to every department of social and domestic economy."

This book covers everything from Selecting a Home (A Habitation Necessary to Life; Prevailing Winds to be Considered, etc) to sections on Cellars, Ice House, Decorations, Clothing, The Skin, Facts about the Human Body, The Food We Eat, Life and Fire Insurance, How to Paint, Forest Tree Culture, Window Gardening, Sickness and Accidents, The Sick Room, Gunshot Wounds, Preservation of Health, Children, Sleep, The Home Cabinet, About Watches and Jewelry, and Toilets (and lots others I didn't type out).

It has a number of illustrations (non-color) as well, with an index in the back.
