    Lever Brothers Ltd., the manufacturers of "Sunlight' soap, published a number of household almanacs and year-books which were intended partly as publicity for their their products, and partly as instruction and entertainment for their employees, some of whom were housed in their model village of Port Sunlight.
    This book contains little original material, the contents being largely culled from popular contemporary household books. The date of publication was probably between 1895 and 1900.
