George the Housewife.and How To Diet and Never Be Hungry by George Leonard Herter and Berthe E. Herter was published by Herter's, Inc., Waseca, Minnesota, in 1964. Not an ex-library copy, this 5 1/2" X 8 1/2", 118-page, 49-year-old, First Edition offering is in G+ condition. Although still in quite sound, firm physical shape overall, Reader, I'm guessing that, over its time in existence, this slender volume has made the rounds/nestled between many pairs of hands. There is some modest yellowing of text's pages as well as endpapers front and back, and some shelf wear is observed at top and bottom edges of spine, in random spots along the length of same, and at the four outer tips of cover boards. There is light foxing on the very outer edges of a few pages of text. From Introduction, "I wrote this book to honestly help the real housewife, mother, and office girl keep house with a minimum of effort. They all have figured prominently in my life. I just got sick and tired of listening to the pure hokum put out by magazines and newspaper women writers trying to become multimillionaires telling women how to be a housewife when they are not even one themselves. They live in homes and apartments with permanent or part-time maids, or army and navy orderlies. In honeyed words they write that they are women just like you and everything that they write is just for 'little old you'. Of course, they ask you to send in your methods of housekeeping so that they can print them. They neglect to put your name and address on these stolen ideas. All they want built up is themselves and their incomes. It is just a plain 'con' game, and you are the sucker. In this book I give you the personal experiences of the Herter families for generations, both here and around the world. .Every bit of advice I write has been tried, and I mean thoroughly tried. I do not mean 'tried' like some writers state, and not actually tried at all. I am a man who has cooked, kept house, and brought up children, not a fly by night socialite and bridge player or navy or army officer's club housewife, or a plain self-styled authority. I write only about things that I really know about." SUCH AS. "How To Keep Rabbits from Damaging Fruit Trees", "How To Wipe a Baby's Posterior", "Best Way To Keep Rolls or Doughnuts Fresh", "How To Set a Table on a Boat", "Make Your Own Diapers from Newspapers", "Watercress Can Kill You", "Mothballs Excellent for Starting Picnic or Camp Fires", "How To Remove Insects from Ears", "How To Put on a Girdle", and, along with dozens and dozens more, "Watermelon Pickles Cleopatra". Includes Table of Contents(over 250 helpful hints). Also features some 15 black and white photographs, the subjects of which are almost as diverse as the range of hints discussed. Thank you!!.
