] I found this list of books the other day whilst researching something about clothing.
] Has anyone read them?Would anyone recommend them?
] The Complete Servant by Sarah and Samuel Adams (Southover Press) 13.95pounds sterling. (If my memory is right this is a reprint of a book that came out about 1825)
] Just wondered. Thanks.
I believe that the Complete Servant was used as a bible for the production of P&P2. P&P2 Researcher Clare Elliot: "I discovered an excellent book at the London Library published in 1825: The Complete Servant, written by Samuel and Sarah Adams, whose own credentials were 'Fifty Years Service in Different Families'. Written for prospecctive servants, it outlined what tasks were performed by everyone in the household."
