Notes

First edition, presentation copy, inscribed by Plunkett, "To Mr Henry Watterson, Editor of the Louisville Courier Journal, with the compliments of the author, H. M. Plunkett 18 E 24th St NY, March 15th 1885". Watterson (1840-1921) won the two Pulitzer Prizes in 1918 and served a term in the US House of Representatives. In this manual of household hygiene Plunkett, a female pioneer of the early sanitary movement, promotes rigorous sanitation as an important part of the women's sphere.
