The Ladies’ Book of Useful Information: Compiled From Many Sources.
London, Ont.: London Printing & Lithographing Co. (Ltd.)
1896.

Contains advice on preserving one’s beauty, sex, marriage, gynaecology, laundry, and ornamental crafts such as artificial flower-making.
There are several cures for baldness, advice on clearing a room of mosquitoes (see the beginning of Chapter 12) and the formula for Turkish Lotion:

“Turkish Lotion is invaluable to every lady. It conceals the evidences of age. By its use a lady of middle-age will have the charming, fresh look of a girl. Every womanly woman desires to appear fresh and youthful as long as possible, thereby making herself the wonder of her own sex and the admiration of the opposite. By using this lotion according to directions every lady may have a fresh, rosy tinted complexion of exquisite pearly fairness, free from wrinkles, crow’s-feet, and sallowness.”
(quoted from the last few pages of the book.)

Lead and mercury?! Oh gees! This book is going on my reading list, but I'll steer clear of the pharmaceutical formulas.

This book seems interesting, I'll have to download it when I get home. Victorian life and customs are interesting to read about! Thanks!
