Binding: green cloth, gilt. Although the author says his book is not a treatise on sanitation nor meant as a manual of practice for civil engineers and architects, is is still fairly technical. The hints offered are on "various points of house-construction and house-arrangement'. The one chapter specifically addressed to "the householdress' is on dust.
