First published in 1833. Good to see that Julia wasn't the first famous cook with the name of Child. All of the advice seems good today. The beginning of one chapter states "The prevailing evil of the present day is extravagence. I know too well that the old are too prone to preach about modern degeneracy....it is too plain that our present expensive habits are productive of much domestic unhappiness, and injurious to public prosperity." 'Nuf said.
