Tsao [Zhao], Lady: Instruction for Chinese Women and Girls, v1, 7 March 2010.

The Chinese Book of Etiquette and Conduct for Women and Girls, Entitled, Instruction for Chinese Women and Girls
By Lady Tsao [Lady Zhao, also known as Pang Tai Ku, Tsao Tai Ku, Zhao Ban, Pan Chao and Huiban]. 45-116 A.D.
Translated from the Chinese by Mrs. S. L. Baldwin [1900]

Zhao Ban was a Han Dynasty scholar, and the first Chinese woman historian; also writing the first Chinese etiquette book. She seems to advise industriousness, modesty and submissiveness for women. Revisionists suggest that this may be a ploy, intended to make sure that a woman survives long enough to be a dowager, or a mother-in-law, when she will have much more power and freedom.

The translator was a Methodist missionary’s wife.
Made from a scan at The Internet Archive. I have included the original illustrations.

I'm currently reading The Insidious Dr. Fu Manchu. The two books would go well together!

Quick easy read. Amazing book is so old! Translation very fluid ie not stilted. Clean edit. Clear and interesting illustrations. Thanks.
