The American Woman's Home book. I admired the spirit and attitude of Harriet Beecher Stowe, if at times a bit too preach-y and self-indulgent. It updates Catharine Beechers influential Treatise on Domestic Economy (1841) and incorporates domestic writings by Harriet Beecher Stowe first published in The Atlantic in the 1860s.

Published in 1873 in New York, The New Housekeeper’s Manual was written by Catharine Esther Beecher and her sister Harriet Beecher Stowe, two of the most influential women writers and activists of their time. The book combines two works by the sisters in one volume. The American Woman’s Home: Or Principles of Domestic Science describes kitchen and home design, coping with kitchen appliances and newly invented gadgets, cooking healthful food and drink, caring for the sick with medical recipes, and gardening with plants and domestic animals.

Published in 1869 by the indomitable Beecher sisters, The American Woman's Home is remarkable for both its philosophy and its practicality

Published in 1869 by the indomitable Beecher sisters, The American Woman's Home is remarkable for both its philosophy and its practicality. A pioneering work of scientific kitchen planning, the book's recommendation for specific work areas, built-in cupboards and shelves, and continuous work surfaces are ideals that, while new at the time, are taken for granted today

The American Womans Home, originally published in 1869, was one of the late nineteenth centurys most important handbooks of domestic advice. The result of a collaboration by two of the eras most important writers, this book represents their attempt to direct womens acquisition and use of a dizzying variety of new household consumer goods available in the postCivil War economic boom. It updates Catharine Beechers influential Treatise on Domestic Economy (1841) and incorporates domestic writings by Harriet Beecher Stowe first published in The Atlantic in the 1860s.

Today, the book can be likened to an anthology of household hints, with articles on cooking, decorating, housekeeping, child-rearing, hygiene, gardening, etiquette, and home amusements. The American Womans Home, almost a bible on domestic topics for Victorian women, illuminates womens roles a century and a half ago and can be used for comparison with modern theories on the role of women in the home and in society. Illustrated with the original engravings, this completely new edition offers a lively introduction by Nicole Tonkovich and notes linking the text to important historical, social, and cultural events of the late nineteenth century

"The American Woman's Home" is the most complete record of historic (mid-1800s) American domestic life I've found. Originally an instructional guide for homemakers, it's now wonderful window to women's lives in a very different time. The subjects covered are too numerous to list. Use Amazon's "Look Inside" feature to read through the table of contents to see if your interests are included...you'll be amazed by how much detailed information the author packed into this book. A great professor I once had used it as a textbook for a Women's Studies class. Every student in the class loved it - it's both enlightening and entertaining.

It is ESSENTIAL to find the correct edition of this book. One disappointing version published by Echo Library OMITS 100% of the original book's illustrations and diagrams.

A COMPLETE edition is published by RUTGERS UNIVERSITY PRESS and includes all illustrations and text. Enter its ISBN - 0813530792 - in Amazon's search box to find it, but be sure to "Look Inside" the book to confirm it includes illustrations...the first page of Chapter One ("The Christian Family") should show a drawing of a church. If there's no artwork shown, it's probably a text-only (thus incomplete) edition. Amazon applies the same reviews to multiple versions of the same title, even if they differ widely, so don't rely on reviews unless they specify which edition they're referring to. Double-check by looking inside!

Find the right edition, and enjoy! You will not be disappointed!

Good book for women who seek to run a home in the traditional style replete with gender roles and intelligent thought about doing things in a top notch manner around a classic homestead situation. We need more of this in todays PC world. Lots of good information for the wife on the homestead here.

This is a book written in the 19th centuary and so very much of the sound advise is still wise for use today. Of course you must sift through what is for today and what is not. But it is so very interesting and homemaking is a talent that is dying more and more as the generations progress. And this is to everyone's loss.

Quite fascinating to see how much hasn't changed over the years. It was a fascinating book and still has many practical ideas and applications. In this version I was not able to see the sketches that the author referenced but the content was interesting none the less.

Must read!

While the actual print content is spot on, some of the print versions of this book have drawn diagrams of some of the things described in the book that help immensely.

It was the book I wanted, but I did not read enough to see that was paperback. I will be more careful.
I bought this because I had just read Uncle Toms Cabin and a biography of Harriet Beecher the author. The biography said that Harriet had actually written this book but because she was so young at the time it was published by her sister. That made me interested in what a teen girl of the late 1800's would have written. It was a nice surprise. Although I can't see homemakers of today getting a lot of advice from it however if you are interested in getting ideas to manage a modern day home this book would not be helpful.
