SYNOPSIS: This book is intended for a child's library.  But the information in it is so easy to understand and so basic, that it can hardly be passed up as a wonderful source.  Complete with numerous illustrations, it covers everything from chamber pots to linen presses to corsets.  Follow a boy during a day in school, plan a dinner party, or help dress the lady of the house.  For basic, straightforward information, this is the reference to have!
