A Plain Cookery Book for the Working Classes, Charles Elme Francatelli
2 Charles Elme Francatelli A Plain Cookery Book for the Working Classes
The Scholar Press 241838 London 1978 New Edition 0859673901 / 9780859673907 Softcover Good Condition A PLAIN COOKERY BOOK FOR THE WORKING CLASSES - 1852 - INTRODUCTION - MY object in writing this little book is to show you how you may prepare and cook your daily food, so as to obtain from it the greatest amount of nourishment at the leash possible expense and thus, by skill and economy, add, at the same time, to your comfort and to y o u com arativelsyle nder means. The Recipes which it contains will afford su5cient variety, from the simple every-day fare to more tasty dishes for the birthday, Christmas-day, or other festive occasions. In order to carry out my instructions properly, a few utensils will be necessary. Industry, good health, and constant employment, have, in n anyin - sla ces, I trust, enabled those whom I now address to lay by a little suin of money. A porfiion of bhis will be well speut in the purchase of the following articles -A coolring-stove, with an oven at the side, or placed under the grate, which should be so plau ed as to admit of the fire bei g open or closed at will by this col trivance much heat and fuel are economized there should also be a boiler at the b lclr of the grate. By this means you would have hot water always ready at hand, the advantage of which is COE siderable. Such poor mens cooking-stoves exist, on a large scale, in all modern-built lodging-houseu. Also, a three-gallon iron pot with a lid to it, a one-gallon saucepan, a two-quart ditto, a frying-pan, a gridiron, and s strong tin baking-dish. Here is a list of the cost prices at which the above-named articles, as well as a few others equally necessary, may be obtained of all ironmongers -A cooking-stove, 2 ft. 6 in. wide, with oven only . . . . . Ditto, with oven and boiler . . A three-gallon oval boiling pot . . A one-gallon tin saucepan, and lid . A two-quart ditto . . . a A potato steamer . . . h oval frying-pan, from . . . A gridiron, from . . . . A copper for washing or brewing, twelve gallons . . . . A mash-tub, from . . . Two cooling-tubs or an old wine or beer cask cut in halves, would be cheaper, and answer the same pur pose, each 6s. . . . . To those of my readers who, from sickness or other hindrance, have not money in store, I would say, strive to lay by a little of your weekly wages to purchase these things, that your families may be well fed, and your homes made comfortable. And now a few words on baking your own bread. I assure you if you would adopt this excellent practice, you would not only effect a great saving in your expenditure, but you would also insure a more substantial and wholesome kind of food it would be free from potato, rice, bean or pea flour, and alum, all of which substances are objectionable in the composition of bread. The only utensil required for bread-making would be a tub, or trough, capable of working a bushel or two of flour. This tub would be usefulin brewing, for which you will find in this book plain and e a g directions. I have pointed out the necessity of procuring these articles for cooking purposes, and with the injunction to use great care in keeping them thoroughly clean, I wiil at once proceed to show you their value in a course of practical and economical cool ery, the soundness and plainness of which I sincerely hope you will all be enabled to test in your own homes.

Vermillion 233145 Great Britain 2005 0091898668 / 9780091898663 Softcover Near Fine Condition With so many articles and images in the media encouraging women to become thinner, younger and more successful, it is no wonder that females of all ages feel oppressed and face a constant struggle to achieve these ideals. Coming to their rescue with quick-fix solutions is the beauty industry offering a panoply of treatments that promise to change women's physical appearance and as a result their mental well-being too. Yet Leslie and Susannah Kenton argue that these are fruitless attempts at life enrichment - what really follows are feelings of dissatisfaction and vacuity. In their authoritative and inspiring guide, Leslie and Susannah offer an alternative to the beauty industry's empty promises: by embracing her authenticity and expressing her own individuality, a woman will radiate health and beauty naturally and feel truly empowered. The guide is secret because each woman's life journey is unique and she must discover her own path to fulfillment. Divided into three sections, Body, Beauty and Bliss, this comprehensive guide covers the full spectrum of a woman's needs for inner and outer health and beauty. It includes advice on how to: - Discover your individual beauty blockers, - Detox your body for lasting health and radiance, - Harness your body's natural capacity to heal and cleanse, - Overcome addictive eating and balance your hormones, - Create sacred time and space, - Beat anxiety and turn depression into creativity, Natural beauty, the body they desire and unfaltering mental bliss are within every woman's grasp: this guide is a must for those looking to find them and keep them. 288 pages.

The Oxford Companion to English Literature, Margaret Drabble [Editor]
14 Margaret Drabble [Editor] The Oxford Companion to English Literature
Oxford University Press 236066 Oxford 1985 New Edition 0198661304 / 9780198661306 Hardcover Good Condition Good Sir Paul Harvey's original Oxford Companion to English Literaure, published in 1932, was the book that began Oxford's celebrated Companion series. In its various editions in the half-century since then, it has enjoyed an enormously faithful following and unflagging sales (over 400,000 to date). Now, for the Fifth Edition, the eminent novelist and biographer Margaret Drabble has put together the most substantial and significant revision in the book's distinguished history. The Classic Guide to English Literary Culture Here, thoroughly updated, is the standard reference work on English literature, both clasic and contemporary. The virtues established by Harvey are intact: the useful plot summaries, the separate entries on important fictional characters, the countless biographical articles on authors and other important figures in the world of letters, the lightness of touch that makes the book a pleasure to read. As ever, this is an essential book for libraries large and small, for students, for teachers, for everyone interested in English literature. Revisions Deepen and Widen Book's Appeal Drabble's revisions not only bring the volume up to date; they both deepen and widen its appeal. Topics once regarded as non-literary--detective stories, science fiction, children's literature, comic strips, for example--are now included, as are numerous foreign language authers who have become well-known in translation. There are also entries on composers who have adapted English texts to musical forms and articles on visual artists whose work has been touched by the English literary consciousness. The book covers all the important movements and critical theories (including the latest developments in Freudian and Marxist criticism and Saussurean linguistics and its successors). What is more, the entries on classic works--Beowulf, The Canterbury Tales, The Faerie Queen, and many others--now incorporate the findings of the latest scholarship. In still another innovation, the entries now offer the reader a guide to turther study and research by referring to the relevant biographies, memoirs, critical studies, and standard scholarly editions of many of the important works. Also, the book's appendices on censorship, copyright, and the calendar have been updated, and an exhaustive cross-referencing system in the manner of the more recent Companiions has been adopted. About the Editor: Margaret Drabble's many books include The Middle Ground, The Realms of Gold, The Ice Age, Thank You All Very Much, and A Writer's Britain. Standard Features: Among the many notable features distinguishing The Oxford Companion to English Literature are: . Alphabetically arranged entries . Entries on important individual works . Author entries that include concise biographical information and cite their major works . Many entries on historians, critics, philosophers, and booksellers . Coverage of many American authors and of foreign language authors famous in translation . Entries on non-literary figures famous in a literary context, from Penelope Rich to Ottoline Morrell . Articles on literary societies, clubs, and coffee houses . Definitions of literary and artistic movements, from Existentialism to the New Criticism, from Neo-classicism to Structuralism . Entries on prizes, periodicals, newspapers, and literary agents . Updated appendices on censorship, copyright, and the calendar .
