Overview
A wonderfully entertaining vintage manual written in 1827--from how to properly clean furniture to preparing for a party
Are you performing your household duties efficiently and cheerfully? If the answer is no, fear not Robert Roberts' carefully observed collection of tips and advice will turn you into a model of domestic perfection. Learn how to restore carpets to their first bloom, how best to clean shoes and boots, the ideal technique to remove flies from a room, a trick to take ink spots out of mahogany, and how to make liquid currant jam of the first quality. Full of humor and wit, this 1827 handbook also offers a fascinating insight into the social milieu of a bygone age. One of the first commercially written books by an African-American published in the U.S., this manual remains as informative as it is useful and entertaining.
