By Samuel and Sarah Adams. Reprint with reset type. An appendix listing market and other prices has been omitted, otherwise it is unabridged. This was probably the best known British servant's guide. It's been suggested it was actually written as an inspirational piece by the mistress of a large household; the Adams' story of their rise to the top of their respective professions as butler and housekeeper does seem a little too perfect to be true. More than 30 chapters describing the responsibilities and proper conduct for each type of servant in the household. Numerous culinary, medical and household recipes. 180 pages. Softcover. Import.
