About This Item

1738 RARE Home Economics for German Women Housekeeping Cooking Astronomy

A rare and very curious 18th-century German compendium on housekeeping! Collected by Johann Funcke, this book is a collection of essays and articles on gardening, commerce at markets, weather and physical science, and even a section devoted to astronomy/astrology. The book itself was written for women readers to teach them how to prepare and maintain a home – it includes essays on how to do laundry, cook, set a table, and keep a food inventory.

Many of the lessons are accompanied by fine illustrations including views of barometric and hygrometric tools, the solar system, and more.
