Abstract

Isabella Beeton (1836-1865) wrote in the preface of her Book of Household Management: ‘The coloured plates are a novelty not without value.’ This colourful lithographic frontispiece depicting cherries, apricots and peaches, grapes, oranges, and other such delectables, conveys at least the food side of her 1861 classic. As seen from the sub-titles on the title-page opposite the frontispiece, the book also contains information ranging from the ‘cook’, ‘valet’, and ‘maid-of-all-work’, to ‘sanitary, medical and legal memoranda.’
