I spent the morning browsing through this collection, which I’ll admit to not having looked at until today, and was blown away by some of the amazing things I found like
- Etiquette lessons
- Suggestions for promoting “beautiful feet and hands”
- Marriage advice
- Career opportunities for the 19th century woman (including library work!)
- Fashion plates (and advertisements for “healthful” corsets)
If you have even a passing interest in the lives of your great-great-grandmothers, or what a daily routine might be for a 19th century woman, take a moment to browse this excellent collection.
