It appears that the content of the book is there.

However, the book doesn't have any publishing information that is standard in the front of the book (ie first published, who published it etc). It looks like someone has typed the book into a publishing/ MSWord document and then printed it and bound it. I wanted to have a book that has been around for over a century, and I got a book that looks like it was a stolen copy. I guess you get what you pay for.

Much of the information and advice Isabella Beeton gives us is now pretty much obsolete but as a glimpse of a bygone era the book is a fascinating insight into the daily routines of an upper class Victorian household. It makes one realise how much easier our lives have been made by modern technology. The recipes are also a reminder of how esoteric British Victorian cuisine could be (potted ptarmigan, anyone?) but it's well worth giving them a try if you see something that looks interesting. However, I have given the book a 3-star rating because of its lack of illustrations (my mother's edition of Mrs B has plenty) and its appalling layout. Headings are placed at the bottom of pages and/or tacked onto the end of paragraphs making recipes extremely difficult to even spot, let alone follow. The lack of a proper index makes the problem worse. It looks like a badly collated photocopy job. Whoever edited this should be ashamed. So while the content is great, the presentation is very disappointing.

A great lesson in cooking history. A couple of years ago I read a mystery story/cooking and the heroine always asked "What would Mrs. Beeton Do?"
It makes gooding reading and still has information for us now. I read some cookbooks like I read novels. This was very enjoyable and and a go-to book for info and recipies.
