Scott, Rhea Clarke. Home Laborsaving Devices.

Illus. with drawings and blueprints by Mrs. R.E. Gamble. Tan cloth, pictorial cover label. First Edition. Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott, [1918].
A fantastic guide to all that was new in American homes at the end of WWI, which ushered in an era without household help of the human kind. Conveniences for the kitchen, laundry, dining room, porch, as well as farm devices for poultry and dairy, are included herein. A radical addition to the porch? The iceless refrigerator! Very good condition.
