    Binding: blue limp cloth.%The plates are diagrams showing nutritional values. Despite the title, this is a textbook of domestic economy, intended for younger pupils. The contents are arranged in four parts - health, home work, expenditure, and little children and illness. The author assumes that girls from a young age will be responsible for minding babies and their own homes, and she writes with an awareness of their current needs rather than with a view to their future r#3oles.
