Tuppenny Rice And Treacle - Doris Coates

David & Charles, 1975, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. DJ sunned at the spine otherwise a very well presented copy.

Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the cover: “This delightful mixture of household hints, recipes and economies, builds up a picture of life in the early 1900s and also provides a host of tips for today, including ideas for cheap main meals and old-fashioned puddings. Draw s presents material on all aspects of cleaning, from the harsh realities of preparing the ornate kitchen range to restoring delicate black lace and making toothpowders at home. A section on home medicines, including one for bed sores (something to do with the white of an egg) — should not, perhaps, be taken too seriously, but the many recipes for preserves and wines from the hedgerow would be equally useful today.”
