In the dim and distant past, when a Lady had servants to look after her house, she relied on the Edwardian bible for the household: The Woman’s Book, a weighty tome full of hints and tips on how to run her home. With guidance everything from the price of setting up and furnishing a new space to how to clean, deal with paperwork, remove stains, wash and iron clothes properly, and generally how to run a house in the Edwardian period, this book is a mine of useful information, much of it still valid today, even if written in the rather formal style of 1911.
