  1. Love it. I am interested to find out more about that book. I love to know what every woman needed to know back at that time.

  2. Intriguing cover - is it leather?

    The text of the book is available in google books - looks like it was about pregnancy, childbirth, child-rearing, etc. Lots of interesting ideas for the time (as least in the parts I skimmed).
