Do’s and Don’ts of Yesteryear, by Eric Sloane; hard cover; 144 pages; reprint 1968, 1972

This hard cover book is an unabridged republication, in one volume, of Eric Sloane’s Do: A Little Book of Early American Know-How and Eric Sloane’s Don’t: A Little Book of Early American Gentility.  The collection offers vintage, homespun advice culled by the author from colonial-era almanacs and diaries.  Hundreds of brief reflections spread time-honored wisdom on everything from curing hiccups and mending clothing and furniture, to predicting weather and getting rid of boring houseguests.  A fun little book for the history buff and anyone wanting to recall a less hurried time.
