I found this list of books the other day whilst researching something about clothing.
Has anyone read them?Would anyone recommend them?
Behind the Scenes (domestic arrangements in historic houses) by Christina Hardyment
(The National Trust), 24.99 pounds sterling
Care of Clothes by Jane Ashelford (The National Trust)4.99 pounds sterling
The Country House (How it worked) by John Vince (John Murray)9.99 pounds sterling
The National Trust Manual of Housekeeping by Hermione Sandwith and Sheila Stainton (Penguin books/The National Trust, paperback) 13 pounds sterling
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.
