1 The Family Friend. Vols. 1-5
London Houlston and Stoneman 1849 First Edition Half Calf Fair 16mos Engravings 
"The information which we have aimed to impart is mostly of a practical character. We have little to do with theories. A flow of religious feeling, and a high moral tone, will be found to pervade our work. Yet there may be read ... some matters of suggestive pleasantry ... It has been our particular aim throughout to blend Treasures with Trifles -Preface." Somewhere in vol. 2, famed chessmaster Daniel Harrwitz - who did not found the 'British Chess Review' until 1856 - contributed chess problems and chess games. Also many remarkable household hints and cookery advice. This journal had over fifty thousand subscribers, but runs of it are quite challenging to find. Contemporary half leather, marbled boards, spines chipped. 004732
