'Take My Advice' illustrates the domestic arrangements of the Victorian upper and middle classes and provides a window into the social structure and stability which was essential to the Victorian idyll. The book is enlightening, comprehensive and entertaining. Much of the advice would be pertinent today but some of it, particularly in the Home Chemistry and Medicine sections, needs the warning, 'DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME'.

Household Management; Original recipes; Brewing and Distilling; Chemistry; Medicine; Law; Gardening; Trade and Scientific Facts; In-Door and Out-Door Games; Domestic Pets and Pests; Etiquette and Manners; Ladies' Work; and finally Something For Everybody.
