This incredibly extensive book is the third volume of Every Womans Encyclopędia and takes us from page 1537 to 2256, a total of 719 pages.
It covers anything and everything a nice young Edwardian lady would need to know including, beauty, home, occupations, gardening, recreations and pastimes, pets, cookery, millinery, dressmaking, nursing, marriage and so on and so forth, really too much to list here.
There are colour plates, photographs, diagrams and illustrations.
Absolutely fascinating with lots of quaint ideas about things such as marriage and work!
Condition is excellent considering it's around 100 years old; just an area of damage to the front cover (see image below) and smaller areas of wear to back. Minimal shelfwear and bumping to cover boards. Inside boards are a little discoloured with some grubbiness, likewise the front and back endpapers. Pages are generally bright and clean, just the odd bit of yellowing, boards have a little looseness but binding is good.
