Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Published in 1938, this reportedly was a standard issue in Depression-era households. Chemist Bennett provides formulas for making everything from shoe polish, toothpaste, cosmetics, crayons, and paints to liquor, cheese, and rubber shoes. Since many of the ingredients are highly toxic and no longer publicly available, this is now a kitschy piece of Americana. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
