Charming WOODEN COVER Household Rhythm Charming WOODEN COVER Household Rhythm

Vintage booklet WOODEN COVER Household Rhythm

60 pages of helpful household hints in prose!

Kitchen tips, food handling and cooking tips, stains away, giving direction, how to handle bad
news, how to get rid of wrinkles, clean cloths, etc. etc.

Here are some examples from the book: '...If finger nails incline to break, Here is a plan that's keen, Rub both the roots and edges well, With liquid glycerine...'

'..Dont be impatient when you bake, a pudding or a cake, to turn them out as soon as done is often a mistake, from oven hot ten minutes wait, and leave them in the pan, for as they cool theyre bound to shrink, and come out spic and span'

Small, cute black & white sketch illustrations on almost every page.

No date or copyright anywhere but it's obviously old, probably '40s or '50s. The last page tells a bit about Yucca:
This book is fabricated from the extrememly rare, fibrous growth of the YUCCA....thirty known species...pollination
occurs through the aid of the Pronuba moth only...many uses...we find a legend which relates that whosoever contacts
YUCCA shall have the best of luck.

Condition of the book is very good; note a couple of pencil marks on page 23, otherwise it looks fine. Measures
about 7 X 5 3/4 inches.


Thanks for looking!
