1 Anne Cobbett The English Housekeeper: or Manual of Domestic Management: Containing Advice on the Management of Household Affairs...for the Use of Young Ladies Who Undertake the Superintendence of Their Own Housekeeping.
London A. Cobbett 1835 2nd Edition Hardcover Very Good Book Illustrated 
1835, Anne Cobbett, 2nd edition. [i-iii] iv-xxiii; 475 pp; index unpaginated [13pp]; + 13 pages adverts. 7.5 x 4.75. Engraved frontis and in-text engravings. The calling card of Rosalind Richards is laid in, and the original bookseller's stamp is laid in. Rosalind was one of Laura Richards three children. She had a brief flirtation with E.A. Robinson in his younger years. This book was wildly successful in the UK and the US throughout the 19th century and right into the 20th. It went into multiple printings. As ubiquitous as it was then, so it is scarce today. The most recent copy at auction was 1984, The OCLC lists mostly microfilm copies in libraries around the world. This copy is only one of a devilishly few extant. The text is uncut- as it came from the bindery in 1835. Rebound in new endpapers, new rear board and spine. Original front board. Approx. 4.5x7.5 inches, very good condition.
