Worth a Thousand Words: The Complete Home

The Complete Home: An Encyclopedia of Domestic Life and Affairs. 1879.

This is a really glorious book cover. I can only imagine how proud Mrs. Julia McNair Wright must have been when it was published. I also like the beauty implied by the flowers and ornaments, which would be the beauty that a purchaser would hope to bring to their home with the helpful tips inside.
