The book subject is very good because i have the 1833 editioon but when i downloaded this book i saw there were lots of spelling mistakes so it was hard to read. Otherwise i love this book.

I would have rated it higher, if not for the typos. I enjoyed reading this book. Most of the recipes are unusable, but fun (what is a gill in measure¿ :) ). I like the tone of the book. She gives some practical advice about living that i believe can still be relevant today.
