Book Condition: Fair
Book Description Hardcover. Book Condition: Good +. Dust Jacket Condition: good. Petersburg, NY, et al; Success Company, 1909. The two books are tight bound together, fat 8vo,1000+ pages with a separate index for each. Divided in several sections, each of which is separately paginated. The cover is half calf and green (faded) buckram. Tips are bumped and scuffed. Spine cover is cracking, front and back, but still attached firmly. 3/4ths of an inch of top of spine cover is missing (see photos). Marbelized pastedowns. Hinges are beginning. Some minor age toning to text block. Many illustrations. A few dog-eared pages. All in all a nice copy and an excellent reference work for historians or collectors. Practical ideas for making "discoveries" of how to do household chores more easily and faster. Hundreds of recipies, the cream of the crop of many hundreds of thousands that the author reviewed. The contents are pictorial. According to the author, "If a moving-picture machine could follow a good housekeeper around from morning until night, seven days in the week, and fifty-two weeks in the year, and then throw the series of pictures taken upon a screen, the result would be similar to the contents of this volume.".
