Item Description: J. B. Ford and Company, New York, 1873. Hardcover. 591pp, with ten pages of ads at rear. Octavo [21 cm] in green cloth with decorative stamping in gilt and black. All edges gilt. Unobtrusive rippled dampstain to front board at foot. extremities fraying and exposed, light soiling to rear board. Front hinge cracked (but holding), small dampstain to front free endpaper, contemporary pencil name on front flyleaf. Occasional light soiling to text. Several clippings and recipes laid in. Three engraved plates, engravings in-text throughout. Yes, this is *that* Harriet Beecher Stowe, author of Uncle Tom's Cabin. Rather surprisingly, she did not begin writing on domestic economy before becoming a famous author, but after. Stowe became the editor of the periodical "Hearth and Home" in 1868. The next year, she co-authored "The American Woman's Home" with her sister, Catharine E. Beecher, who was an advocate for women's and children's education, and, rather bafflingly, an anti-suffragist. This 'revised' edition of "The American Woman's Home" is a word-for-word reprint of that title, apparently printed from the same plates, up to page 432, where it dispenses with the final two chapters and inserts "The Handy Cookbook" by Catharine Beecher. This may have been a somewhat dodgy attempt by the publisher to capitalize on the Beecher sisters' names (although it spells Catharine's wrong on the title page, twice).Dedicated to "the women of America, in whose hands rest the real destinies of the Republic, as moulded by the early training and preserved amid the maturer influences of home.".
