The Household Cyclopedia is a book of general knowledge printed in 1881. It is a book for people who need to be able, if the circumstances demand, to amputate a limb, grow their own fibre for material, take care of their horses, give birth to children and build houses, concoct medicines, all with the minimum of help from others.
1881? Wow!
