Product Overview

First published 1825. A fascinating source of social history and a guide to backstairs living in both large and modest houses of the late Georgian era. Advice to employers and their servants from an ex-butler and an ex-housekeeper, dealing not only with the kitchen but also with the house, stables and garden, and with an unusual section on menservants'' duties over a period when little is known about them. 30 categories of servants'' duties are discussed, and also the duties of employers toward them; these last are surprisingly humane and tolerant. Introduction by Pamela Horn.
