Description
During the eighteenth century ladies of high society kept handwritten notes on recipes, remedies, gardening and household tips in their personal House Books and it became fashionable to exchange the most successful with friends and neighbours. Very few of these fragile House Books have survived and this compilation celebrates the discovery of two: one from Lady Talbot of Lacock Abbey and the other from Lady Louisa Conolly of Castletown House. This charming compilation is full of fascinating information and useful tips and gives an insight into the lives of those living in the grand houses of the eighteenth century.
