During an eventful season at Bath, young, naive Catherine Morland experiences fashionable society for the first time. She is delighted with her new acquaintances; flirtatious Isabella, who introduces Catherine to the joys of Gothic romances, and sophisticated Henry and Eleanor Tilney, who invite her to their father's house, Northanger Abbey. There, influenced by novels of horror and intrigue, Catherine comes to imagine terrible crimes committed by General Tilney, risking the loss of Henry's affection, and must learn the difference between fiction and reality, false friends and true.

Catherine Owen's 1881 "Culture and Cooking" is not a recipe book, per se, but rather an attempt to help readers understand food. She explains the processes of why recipes work and aims to elevate cooking in American to an art form, rather than a utilitarian, daily process of feeding the body. The recipes she does provide are written like a work of literature, rather than a listing of ingredients and directions, to give readers a thorough understanding of cookery, so that American cooks will begin (like the French) to see cooking as an art.

Nuit et jour y règnent " l'odeur de l'ombre et le parfum des aventures ". En regard de remarquables illustrations du photographe Sylvain Sonnet, Passages couverts de Paris raconte l'histoire romanesque de ces étranges " ruelles ", sous la plume de Catherine Grive.

The start of the First World War focused society's attention on the limits of the public food supply and the need for food conservation to support the war-effort. Housewives of all classes, even those with little or no agricultural experience, were called upon to start Victory Gardens. With this call came the question of how to preserve these garden products for use throughout the year. In response, the art of canning and preserving once again came into vogue. To aid housewives with no prior experience in this area, Mary Catherine Hughes published this 1918 work, which provides clear instructi
