Modern Cookery:
Publisher’s Advertising

Just when you thought Modern Cookery was finally over, the publisher hits us with a thirty-six-page advertising supplement. The very first item is Webster’s Encyclopædia, which lives on as one of the principal donors to the informational parts of Beeton’s Book of Household Management (“Mrs. Beeton”). There’s no telling how many of the other listed titles—notably the assorted encyclopedias and general reference works—were also on the Beetons’ bookshelves.

Many books are described as “Post 8vo.” But what does “Post” mean? William Savage’s Dictionary of the Art of Printing, published by Longman’s just a few years before the present book, offers at least three possi­bilities. There’s Small Post, 6¾ × 4⅛ octavo, or about the size of a modern-day mass-market paperback; Thick and Thin Post, 7⅝ × 4⅞; and finally Extra Large Post, 8¼ × 5¼, approaching the size of a smallish hardcover or trade paperback. Take your pick. The same useful source allows us to look up other named sizes: Atlas, Columbier, Foolscap (“fcap.”).

Throughout the catalogue, prices vary at random between forms with or without pounds: here a 3l. 3s., there a 63s.. A fair number of them work out to guineas (multiples of 21s., including the popular 31s. 6d.), indicating books aimed at the upper-class purchaser. But the actual word “guinea” is never used.

Formalities: The name “Gottingen” is always given without umlaut, although accents and umlauts are used appropriately everywhere else. “Van Dieman’s Land” is consistently spelled that way; it is properly Van Diemen’s. (Some ten years later the island was renamed Tasmania, which has enough a’s to please any editor.)

In the advertising section only, missing periods (full . stop) in prices or at the end of a paragraph have been silently supplied.

She has produced, both in style and matter, a very interesting work, creditable to her feelings and talents, and honourable to her industry.” —Britannia.

CALLCOTT.—A SCRIPTURE HERBAL:
With upwards of 120 Wood Engravings. By Lady Callcott. Square crown 8vo. 1l. 5s. cloth.

“‘My chief object and aim in writing this little book,’ commences the amiable and noble authoress, ‘has been to induce those who read and love God’s written Word, to read and love the great unwritten book which he has everywhere spread abroad for our learning.’ The ‘chief object and aim’ of this pious and gifted woman cannot fail in its object. Indeed, we may almost to a certainty pronounce for this labour of her devotional love a success which her most Christian sanguine wishes could not have anticipated for it. The authoress has termed it a small book, and may have at first intended it as such; it is gratifying that it is otherwise, for a single page could not be spared, so redolent is each with the best of material. It is remarked in the preface that the work was written while the body was in a state of ill health—what a contrast must the spirit have presented! May it long direct the head and hand to add thus to our useful literature.” —Standard.

CATLOW.—POPULAR CONCHOLOGY;
Or, the Shell Cabinet Arranged: being an Introduction to the modern System of Conchology; with a sketch of the Natural History of the Animals, an account of the Formation of the Shells, and a complete Descriptive List of the Families and Genera. By Agnes Catlow. Foolscap. 8vo. with 312 Woodcuts, 10s. 6d. cloth.

“This admirable little work is designed to facilitate the study of natural history, daily becoming more attractive, not only from its intrinsic interest, but also from its multiplied relations with geology. It will furnish the young entomologist with an elementary manual, which, though scientific in its form, is, by the simplicity of its method, and the familiarity of its style, calculated effectually to assist him in the early steps of his progress in this fascinating pursuit.” —St. James’s Chronicle.

CHALENOR.—POETICAL REMAINS OF MARY CHALENOR. Fcp. 8vo. 4s. cloth.

CHALENOR.—WALTER GRAY,
A Ballad, and other Poems; including the Poetical Remains of Mary Chalenor. 2d Edition, with Additions, fcp. 8vo. 6s. cloth.

“As the simple and spontaneous effusions of a mind apparently filled with feelings which render the fireside happy, and untinctured with affectation or verbiage, they may with benefit be received into the ‘happy homes of England,’ and offered as a gift to the youthful of both sexes.” —Chambers’ Edinburgh Journal.

CLAVERS.—FOREST LIFE.
By Mary Clavers, an Actual Settler; author of “A New Home, Who’ll Follow?” 2 vols. fcap. 8vo. 12s. cloth.

THE COLLEGIAN’S GUIDE;
Or, Recollections of College Days; setting forth the Advantages and Temptations of a University Education. By **** ******, M.A., —— College, Oxford. Post 8vo. 10s. 6d. cloth.

“A volume of this kind has long been wanted. It traces amusingly the course of the student, from the first discussion that arises in his family on his going to college till his preparation for a first-class man. It details the first steps that should be taken, gives the characters of the several colleges, prescribes modes of life and courses of study, establishes intelligible beacons against the shoals and quicksands of idleness and dissipation and debt, and draws the beau-ideal of a first-rate collegian. This knowledge is thrown into the form of actual occurrence, being the result of the writer’s own experience and observation. The spirit of the book is excellent; and the book itself cannot fail to be useful. All the chapters on college life are admirably written—lively, without exaggeration; practically useful, yet very amusing; discursive and various, yet all tending to the object of elevating the collegian’s character; keeping him from discreditable practices, and fitting him, by a judicious course of study, for the highest pursuits of life.” —Britannia.

COLTON.—LACON; OR, MANY THINGS IN FEW WORDS. By the Rev. C. C. Colton. New Edition, 8vo. 12s. cloth.

DAHLMANN.—HISTORY OF THE ENGLISH REVO­LUTION. By F. C. Dahlmann, late Professor of History at the University of Gottingen. Translated from the German, by H. Evans Lloyd. 8vo. 10s. 6d. cloth.

“Professor Dahlmann’s book is, in short, a rapid sketch of the whole of what we call the Modern History of England, from its start at the Coronation of Henry the Seventh, to its intermediate settlement at the Coronation of William the Third. We have no English summary of the history it relates so brief, compendious, and impartial. M. Dahlmann is a very earnest as well as intelligent writer; and the steady advance of the popular principle in England, through an almost uninterrupted march of two centuries, is startlingly reflected in his clear and transparent relation. Mr. Lloyd’s translation is very well executed.” —Examiner.

DE CUSTINE.—RUSSIA.
By the Marquis De Custine. Translated from the French. 2d Edition. 3 vols. post 8vo. 31s. 6d. cloth.

“We are inclined to think—and it is a painful reflection—that Mons. De Custine’s remarkable volumes contain a more accurate account of the state and condition of Russia than any other work of recent date, without exception. The author has manifestly penetrated through that superficial glitter and gorgeous array which have blinded the eyes of too many travellers to the imperfections and defects of this great empire, and has shewn it as it really is. To do this in the case of Russia requires many and favourable opportunities of observation, considerable shrewdness, and a courage and determination not easily to be daunted; all which Mons. De Custine has proved himself to have possessed in an eminent degree; and the result is, a work which those who are desirous to know Russia as it really is, and not as it would fain impose itself on the world to be, would do well to consult. We promise our readers equal surprise and pleasure from the perusal of his very clever book.” —Gentleman’s Magazine.

DE LA BECHE.—REPORT ON THE GEOLOGY OF CORNWALL, DEVON, AND WEST SOMERSET. By Henry T. De la Beche, F.R.S. etc., Director of the Ordnance Geological Survey. Published by Order of the Lords Commissioners of H. M. Treasury, 8vo. with Maps, Woodcuts, and 12 large Plates, 14s. cloth.

Ex. the Governors Sir George Gipps and Sir John Franklin, and of the Colonists themselves.

DOCTOR (THE), ETC.
5 vols. post 8vo. 2l. 12s. 6d. cloth.

“Admirably as the mystery of the ‘Doctor’ has been preserved up to the present moment, there is no longer any reason for affecting secresy on the subject. The author is Robert Southey; he acknowledged the fact shortly before his last illness to his most confidential friend, an M.P. of high char­acter. In a private letter from Mrs. Southey, dated February 27,1843, she not only states the fact, but adds that the greater part of a sixth volume had gone through the press, and that Southey looked forward to the pleasure of drawing her into it as a contributor; giving her full authority to affirm that her husband is the author.” —Robert Bell, Esq., in The Story Teller.

“The labour bestowed upon this important work has seldom, we should suppose, been equalled; and we have the fullest conviction, from the merely cursory examination we are able to give to such a stupendous task, that the result justifies all the labour, time, and money expended upon it. Indeed, the whole book bears the most palpable evidence of honest carefulness and unwearied diligence—the points of prime worth in a Concordance; and wherever we have dipped into its pages (about 1800), we have, in every case, had our opinion of its neatness, accuracy, and lucid order, confirmed and increased.” —Literary Gazette.

“Most of the persons interested in the art of distinguishing grasses are country gentlemen and farmers, who know nothing of botany, and cannot use the technical descriptions or analytical figures of botanists. To that great class such a book is invaluable. It ought, in fact, to form part of the library of every one interested in rural affairs; for there are few plants so difficult to distinguish as grasses, not any more so, and none which it is more important to know correctly, because of their various uses and qualities.

Every public room in which commerce, politics, or literature forms the subject of discussion, ought to be furnished with these volumes.” —Globe.

M’CULLOCH.—A DICTIONARY, PRACTICAL, THEORETICAL, AND HISTORICAL, OF COMMERCE, AND COMMER­CIAL NAVIGATION. By J. R. M’Culloch, Esq.

“Without exaggeration one of the most wonderful compilations of the age. The power of continuous labour, the wide range of inquiry, and the power of artistical finish, which have been brought into play by this work, are probably unrivalled in the history of literature . . . Compared with all previous attempts to compile a commercial dictionary, Mr. M‘Culloch’s appears as the realisation of an idea which former projectors had conceived too vaguely to be able to carry into execution. It is superior to them all, quite as much for the spirit of judicious selection brought by the author to his task, as for any other quality. The great merit of the work is, that, while omitting nothing of essential importance, it contains nothing that is useless or merely cumbrous . . . The success of the earlier editions of Mr. M‘Culloch’s Dictionary is, after all, the best proof of its merit; the facts attending it prove that the mercantile, political, and literary public were in want of such a work, and that they were satisfied with the manner in which Mr. M’Culloch had performed his task. No reader can rise from the perusal of any one of the larger articles without feeling that no previous writer has concentrated so much valuable information within so small a compass, or conveyed his information in so agreeable a style. And the remark is equally applicable to all the numerous articles of which this crammed volume is composed . . . . It is, indeed, invaluable as a book of reference to the merchant, the insurance-agent, the statesman, and the journalist; and its articles, from the care and talent with which they are executed, are as well calculated to supply the wants of the patient inquirer as of the hurried man of business. Mr. M‘Culloch occupies a high place amongst the authors of the day as a hard-headed original thinker in political economy; a still higher, as one of the most zealous and successful labourers in rendering that science popular; but, of all his publications, his Commercial Dictionary is the one least likely to encounter the rivalry of a work of superior or even equal value.” —Abridged from The Spectator of March 16, 1844.

“Uncle Peter is a fellow of infinite humour. There is a concealed vein of sharp satire running through the substratum of his tales, which it requires something more than a superficial glance to enable a reader to detect. We shall anxiously look for his reappearance in another story shortly. He is a most amusing writer, and though his tales are professedly written for children, there is in them much from which even old heads might derive advantage and instruction.” —Sunday Times.

URE.—DICTIONARY OF ARTS, MANUFACTURES, AND MINES; Containing a clear Exposition of their Principles and Practice. By Andrew Ure, M.D. F.R.S. M.G.S. M.A.S. Lond.; M. Acad. N.S. Philad.; S. Ph. Soc. N.

VON ORLICH (CAPT.)—TRAVELS IN INDIA,
And the adjacent Countries, in 1842 and 1843. By Capt. Leopold Von Orlich. Translated from the German by H. Evans Lloyd, Esq. 2 vols. 8vo. with numerous Illustrations on Wood. —Just ready.

“This collection of specimens of chess skill is unique, and forms a complete encyclopædia of reference to the student and player. It contains upwards of 1000 games, all of them the classical exploits of the best chess warriors of the age. Every student and lover of the fascinating game should possess himself of Mr. Walker’s book.” —Examiner.

SECOND SERIES. With Continuation of Mr. Waterton’s Auto­biography. 2d Edition, fcap. 8vo. with new Vignette by T. Creswick, A.R.A. 6s. 6d. cloth.

“It gives us hearty pleasure to meet with Mr. Waterton again. To miser­able mortals ‘close in populous cities pent,’ his books are as a vigorous autumn air. He is a charming writer. Candid, cordial, good-hearted, and full of the most masculine sympathies. His Autobiography will rank with the most piquant and comprehensive pieces of that kind of writing in the language. His Essays, with little of the learned pretences, have a store of cheerful wisdom in them which yields unfailing instructiveness and pleasure.” —Examiner.

WEBSTER.—AN ENCYCLOPÆDIA OF DOMESTIC ECONOMY; Comprising such subjects as are most immediately connected with Housekeeping; as, The Construction of Domestic Edifices, with the modes of Warming, Ventilating, and Lighting them—A description of the various articles of Furniture, with the nature of their Materials—Duties of Servants—A general account of the Animal and Vegetable Substances used as Food, and the methods of preserving and preparing them by Cooking—Making Bread—The Chemical Nature and the Preparation of all kinds of Fermented Liquors used as Beverage—Materials employed in Dress and the Toilet—Business of the Laundry—Description of the various Wheel Carriages—Preservation of Health—Domestic Medicine, etc. etc. etc. By Thomas Webster, F.G.S., etc.; assisted by The late Mrs. Parkes, author of “Domestic Duties.” 1 thick vol. 8vo. illustrated with nearly 1000 Woodcuts. 50s. cl.

“The title-page sufficiently indicates the wide range of topics included in this most useful Encyclopædia, and all are treated with a fulness which leaves nothing to be desired. It has been the object of the editor to combine science with practice, a knowledge of principles with the ordinary details and daily recurring duties of domestic life. In some departments of the work Mr. Webster has been assisted by a lady whose qualifications are beyond dispute, and the result of their united labours is the production of a volume which exhausts the subject, and defies all competition. The work is richly illus­trated with woodcuts, adding greatly to its value. We strongly recommend every lady, and all others who are concerned in the management of domestic affairs, to make themselves familiar with Mr. Webster’s volume, which must speedily be regarded as an indispensable book of reference to every house­keeper.” —Eclectic Review.

Or, Practical Observations on the Disorders of Cattle and other Domestic Animals, except the Horse. 6th Edition, re-arranged, with copious Additions and Notes. By W. C. Spooner, Vet. Surgeon, author of a “Treatise on the Influenza,” and a “Treatise on the Foot and Leg of the Horse,” etc. 8vo. 9s. cloth.

WHITLEY.—THE APPLICATION OF GEOLOGY TO AGRICULTURE; And to the Improvement and Valuation of Land; with the Nature and Properties of Soils, and the Principles of Cultivation. By Nicholas Whitley, Land Surveyor. 8vo. 7s. 6d. cloth.

WIGAN (DR. A. L.)—THE DUALITY OF THE MIND,
Proved by the Structure, Functions, and Diseases of the Brain, and by the Phenomena of Mental Derangement; and shewn to be essential to Moral Responsibility. With an Appendix: 1. On the Influence of Religion on Insanity; 2. Conjectures on the Nature of the Mental Operations; 3. On the Management of Lunatic Asylums. By A. L. Wigan, M.D. 8vo. 12s. cloth.

“The volume is full of knowledge, and the Author’s remarks, even when he fails to convince, are strikingly acute and ingenious. We apprehend that none who take an interest in the physical structure of the brain, and its intellectual action, or even who have a desire to ameliorate the condition of the insane, will delay to consult a work which contains views singularly original and sagacious on all those subjects. Combining from the writings of the most distinguished men who have studied the anatomy, the mental action, and the derangement of the brain, all the light their studies have enabled them to collect, with that derived from extensive experience of his own, Dr. Wigan concentrates it into a focus, and pours it out upon his pages.” —Britannia.

WILKINSON.—THE ENGINES OF WAR, ETC.
Being a History of Ancient and Modern Projectile Instruments and Engines of Warfare and Sporting; including the Manufacture of Fire Arms, the History and Manufacture of Gunpowder, of Swords, and of the cause of the Damascus Figure in Sword Blades, with some Observations on Bronze: to which are added, Remarks on some Peculiarities of Iron, and on the extraordinary Effect produced by the Action of Sea Water on Cast Iron; with Details the Diary various miscellaneous Experiments. By H. Wilkinson, M.R.A.S. 8vo. 9s. cloth.

WILLOUGHBY (LADY)—A DIARY.
Purporting to have been kept by LADY WILLOUGHBY of Parham, in the Reign of Charles I., embracing some Passages of her Domestic History from 1635 to 1648.

A New Edition, in a smaller size, printed and bound in the style of the period to which the Diary refers. Square Fcap. 8vo. 8s. boards; or 18s. bound in morocco (old style.)

The custom of addressing Euro­peans by their own language’s honorifics, as if Herr and Monsieur were hereditary titles with no English equivalent, is said to be a uniquely English one. Further along on the same page, the Marquis de Custine is referred to as “Monsieur”—the exact equivalent of calling a British peer “Mr.”]

[That “Ph.D.” prompted me to look him up, since English universities notori­ously didn’t give academic doctorates—as opposed to profes­sonial degrees such as LL.D.—until the 20th century. Botanist-horticulturist John Lindley (1799–1865) is known as, among other things, “the father of orchidology”. He was elected a F.R.S. in 1828 at an impressively early age. The Ph.D. was an honorary one, conferred by the University of Munich in 1832; in real life he was never able to go to university at all.]

[The perch—another name for the rod—is more often a unit of linear measure, 16½ ft or just over 5m. But here it’s a square perch, which works out to 1/160 acre. I do hope he’s talking about garden plots; an entire property of 25m2 would be just about enough for a play­house.]

THE BREEDS OF THE DOMESTICATED ANIMALS . . . In 2 vols. atlas quarto
[Atlas paper was 26¼ × 34 inches—unless the publisher here means Double Atlas, which is a whopping 55 × 31½. (For comparison purposes, an ordinary newspaper is 23½ × 29½.) In quarto, the book would then be exactly half this size—whichever it is—each way.]

[In 1857 Macaulay was honored—or kicked upstairs, if you prefer—with a peerage. Later sources always refer to him as “1st Baron Macaulay”; since he had no heirs, he was also the last Baron Macaulay. He died in 1859, making it one of England’s shorter-lived titles all around.]

TRACTARIANISM NOT OF GOD
[The Rev. Tayler might have saved his breath. In 1845, approxi­mately five minutes after this advertising supplement was printed, Tractarian leader John Henry Newman converted to Catholicism. It was pretty much the last nail in the coffin for Tractarianism, other­wise known as the Oxford Movement.]
