I love reading 19th century home -making manuals and have a large collection...but I don't have Wharton s. Thank you for this fun article, with information and instruction still useful today!

And I now feel better about our daughter’s old bedroom which now has simple bookcases, stacked books everywhere and many lamps.

My library !
