Victorian Housewife

Because I need help in the realm of all things domestic, "Mrs. Beeton's Book of Household Management" looks rather enchanting. It was originally published in 1861 and sold 60,000 copies the first year. The author wasn't even 25 years old (she died at 28), and her book is still in print more than 150 years later.
