5.0 out of 5 stars Enquire Within, 24 Jan 2010
This review is from: Enquire within upon Everything 1890: A Comprehensive Guide to the Necessities of Domestic Life in Victorian Britain (Hardcover)
The Victorians loved to try and answer every question anyone could possibly devise. They went to great lengths to publish these answers and some school textbooks of the time were similarly laid out. This book gives a delightful slant on the way that Victorians viewed the world. Now that travel is much more extensive and science has advanced, some of the things contained here make you wonder how on earth anyone could have throught like that. But, remember, then the British Empire was vast and the English way was always the correct way.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic and interesting read - a must have!!, 18 Aug 2010
This review is from: Enquire within upon Everything 1890: A Comprehensive Guide to the Necessities of Domestic Life in Victorian Britain (Hardcover)
I brought this book for my Grandmother as she had given me a much older copy of this book when i was a little girl. My Grandmother was completely over the moon with this copy, not only did it have everything in it but even the font that the book was printend in was exactly the same as the older copy i have. What a wonderful book, not only for some good old fashioned advice but also a competely interesting read. Everyone should have a copy of Equire Within!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beginning of a new world, 19 July 2006
This review is from: Enquire within upon Everything 1890: A Comprehensive Guide to the Necessities of Domestic Life in Victorian Britain (Hardcover)
After purchasing this book, i was doubtful that it would provide sufficient information for my studies of Victorian Lifestyle and Culture - but after reading it, it proved to be a very valuable reference book.

The book is set out like a dictionary, rather than a novel - which, when you are studying, you do not always have time to read a whole book, it is very inciteful, to the point and useful to dip into when you need something in particular.

It teaches you everything you need to know about Victorian Healthcare & ailments, Food & Drink, Games, Costume and much more, Life was very tough for the victorians but this book provides valuable insight into their lives and you can compare how much things have changed in the last 100 years. If you want to find out how your ancestor's survived the Victorian hardships, then i highly recommend you buy this book.

This book gets my full 5 ***** rating.

I didn't realize that I could get stains out of items I thought ruined! The Victorian age must have been quite the time to live in!
