Published: Anne Cobbett London 1850


A familiar title- originally published as a series of pamphlets- and one of the earliest guides to self sufficiency. But this is an unusual example of the Seventeenth Edition as published by Anne Cobbett, the author's daughter,in a fine apparently one-off individual leather binding. Little clue as to the bookbinder apart from the stamp AB inside rear cover.
