The American Frugal Housewife: Dedicated to Those Who Are Not Ashamed of Economy (1838) by Lydia Maria Francis Child (1802-1860). This twenty-second edition is same as her 1830 book, "The Frugal Housewife..." but due to a book by similar title being published in England, Child added "American" to her later editions. Notes: Detached pages. Pages 123-126 are missing.
