WEBSTER.-AN ENCYCLOPÆDIA OF DOMESTIC ECONOMY ;

Comprising such subjects as are most immediately connected with Housekeeping; as, The Construction of Domestic Edifices, with the modes of Warming, Ventilating, and Lighting them -A description of the various articles of Furniture, with the nature of their Materials - Duties of Servants -A general account of the Animal and Vegetable Substances used as Food, and the methods of preserving and preparing them by Cooking--Making Bread - The Chemical Nature and the Preparation of all kinds of Fermented Liquors used as Beverage - Materials employed in Dress and the Toilet - Business of the Laundry Description of the various Wheel Carriages-Preservation of Health - Domestic Medicine, etc. etc. etc. By Thomas Webster, F.G.S., etc.; assisted by The late Mrs. Parkes, author

of Domnestic Duties." I thick vol. 8vo, illustrated with nearly 1000 Woodcuts. '50s. cl. The title-page sufficiently indicates the wide range of topics included in this most useful Encyelopædia, and all are treated with a fulness which leaves nothing to be desired. It has been the object of the editor to combine science with practice, a knowledge of principles with the ordinary details and daily recurring duties of doinestic life. In some departments of the work Mr. Webster has been assisted by a lady whose qualifications are beyond dispute, and the result of their united labours is the production of a volume which exhausts the subject, and defies all competition. The work is richly illustrated with woodcuts, adding greatly to its value, We strongly recommend every lady, and all others who are concerned in the management of domestic affairs, to make themselves familiar with Mr. Webster's volume, which must speedily be regarded as an indispensable book of reference to every housekeeper."
