Household Discoveries ~ An Encyclopedia Of Practical Recipes And Processes on CD

A peice of vintage history, titled "Household Discoveries ~ An Encyclopedia Of Practical Recipes And Processes".

The main object of this book is economy. If rightly used, it will save a great deal of money in every household. It will also save time and labor, which are the equivalent of money. The publishers have long felt that there is a great need for a new book of this sort upon the market.

To be sure, there are a number of standard dictionaries and encyclopedias of applied science. But these cost from five to ten dollars and upward. And they contain a great deal of information about commercial processes not suitable to household use. There are also a number of popular books of recipes published. But most of these are old books. Others are made up scrapbook fashion by the republication of old material without proper editorial supervision. In the course of the preparation of this volume, our attention was necessarily called to the fact that a number of so-called " new " books republish, word for word, recipes and processes that have been formerly published in six or eight other books, some of which appeared before the Civil War.

Recent science has introduced many new substances and processes then unknown. All these have been availed of in the present volume. Moreover, the old-fashioned popular book of recipes leaves something to be desired in its manner as well as its matter. The enormous sale and reputation of a number of old books that contain some recipes of great practical value, but accompanied by comment which no sane person can possibly read without a sense of humor or a feeling of disgust, is the strongest possible evidence of the value of this kind of information. We believe that what has made these old books popular is their practical part and not their silly part. We believe that the public will approve a volume that sets forth what to do, how to do, and the reasons why, in simple, direct, and dignified language, and saves space for additional recipes and other information by omitting " horseplay " and all unnecessary remarks and commentaries.

This is a modern book. All who have owned or used one of the old-time books of recipes know that hardly a week passes that they do not find occasion to refer to it. They will, we believe, appreciate the importance of having the latest and best information along these lines obtainable. Others, who have no good collection of this sort, will appreciate without argument the value of purchasing a new book rather than an old one. Thus we feel that there is a universal necessity for Household Discoveries, and we have therefore put the price so low as to bring it within the reach of every family, in the confident expectation of distributing at least a million copies throughout the

Twenty-six {26} chapters and over 1,000 pages presented on a Gift Quality CD.
