HOUSEHOLD ELEGANCIES. SUGGESTIONS IN HOUSEHOLD ART AND TASTEFUL HOME DECORATIONS
first editionHard Cover
by Mrs. C. S. Jones; Henry T. Williams
New York: Henry T. Williams, Publisher, 1875. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good binding. The Williams Publishing Company advertised this in the November 20, 1875 issue of Publihser's Weekly -- just in time for Christmas -- calling it "The most beautiful Ladies' Book ever Published!", calling it "[a] splendid new book on Household Art" and noting that "Hundreds of exquisite illustrations decorated the pages". This First Edition copy has reinforcement to the front hinge, and is lacking the rear endpaper. It is not the "most beautiful Ladies' Book ever published" but it is an interesting window into late Victorian American decoration and design. Very Good binding. (Inventory #: 275258)
