Want to know how to purify a well, make strawberry vinegar, or build and clean stoves, chimneys and furnaces? The answers all are waiting at the USC Libraries. In 1873, The New Housekeeper’s Manual: Embracing a New Revised Edition of the American Woman’s Home—coauthored by Uncle Tom’s Cabin author Harriet Beecher Stowe and her older sister Catharine Beecher—was published. Heavily referencing Biblical scriptures, the sisters’ “how-to” manual on excelling at domesticity uses science, religion, architecture, and nutrition—as well as the author’s own feminist philosophies—to emphasize the physical and spiritual health of a family. The second half of the book includes simple recipes for everything from potato soup and roast beef to such delicacies as veal cheese, souse, and tripe." (from San Francisco Chronicle)
