A fascinating read and glimpse into the insights of Downton Abbey's peer group offers hilarious, helpful and horrifying insight of the early 20th century. What are the benefits of applying lard to your eyebrows, why you should break a raw egg into your walking boots, and how the teeth may be polished beautifully... Hardcover. 172p., 7.5".

Read an excerpt:

The Nursery

When a Child has had a Blow put a little fresh butter or olive oil on to the skin immediately, and renew it every quarter of an hour for two or three hours. A piece of brown paper soaked in one-third brandy and two-thirds water applied to the part is also very useful, and as the paper dries it should be moistened again.

Children should never be allowed to drink water when they are heated, as dangerous internal chills may result from this.

Sleep. Until children reach the age of twelve years, they should have at least ten hours' sleep out of the twenty-four.

Interesting
I found a lot of the tips in this book are just as helpful now as it was during the Edwardian period. I looked up many things I had questions on and the solutions were easy.

Darling, amusing little book
I got this book on a whim and glad I did. It is so cute, has darling illustrations, but best of all, is so very amusing to read. The tips and advice from long ago alternate from unbelieveable to what????. Although there were a few that still hold true. Interesting to read how things were done way back when.
