Sepia Saturday 105 - Mrs Beeton!

From my late Victorian copy of The Book of Household Management by Isabella Beeton.

Taking part in Sepia Saturday


  1. I love Mrs. Beeton. I posted her plum pudding recipe last month for stir up Sunday. Her book is such a treasure! Love the illustrations.

  2. The illustrations are really wonderful. I prefer them to the modern style of photographs.

  3. I'm happy you posted these, because living over here, I just didn't really know the name, Mrs. Beeton....she is surely much like our Betty Crocker maybe! Nice post!

  4. It was interesting seeing more pictures and reading your previous post.

  5. Gorgeous illustrations. We had stewed pears at Christmas, but ours were in spiced red wine - I wonder if Mrs Beeton’s were too!
