First published in 1911 and republished here on fully searchable CD-ROM is "The Woman's Book: Contains Everything A Woman Ought to Know". Containing more than 700 printed pages, this self-help manual for household management was, in its day, at the forefront of advice for women. Although the advice given is now, in the main obsolete and even offensive, books such as this brought into the open many subjects that had been hidden away in Victorian Britain. Appealing to the middle-class woman of a certain means, The Woman's Book provides details on every aspect of household management, from money, to childcare, illness and entertainment.
Edited by Florence B. Jack with the aid of numerous expert women contributors, "The Woman's Book" was at its time of publication, a revolutionary phenomenon.
