1840 Workwoman´s guide

Google has managed to scan this book so all pages+plates are included. The downloadable pdf is 18.6M. The book is very interesting and covers all for a family living in 1840. Sewing cloths for newborn babies - servants- old persons (text tell you the dim and plates show how), sewing house-linen, upholstery,chemical receipts, wash and ironing, how to fold a silk dress..., knitting and straw platting. All this in less than 400 pages!
