THE USEFUL COMPANION AND ARTIFICER’S ASSISTANT is a book for both the lay person and the trained professional. It also has a well-stocked trades department, with a formidable supply of practical instructions and information for:
Groceries and mercantile businesses
Stock owners, farriers and livery keepers
Painters and wall-paper hangers
Printing and bookbinding
Masons and builders
Tailors, Milliners, Dyers, Hatters, Lace Makers, Bleachers and Renovators

Gunsmiths and tinsmiths
Tanners, leather dressers and harness makers
Machinists and metal workers
The editors of THE USEFUL COMPANION AND ARTIFICER’S ASSISTANT boldly proclaim in the Preface:
This is unquestionably the largest, handsomest, and most useful book ever published for the price, and one of the most valuable ever published at any price.
No one book that has ever been published “since the world began” has contained as large an amount of general information and instruction of practical every-day use, to everybody.
It contains nearly 6,000 valuable recipes and formulaes adapted to every trade, profession and occupation in Christendom. Every farmer in the land should have a copy of this work. It contains a very large amount of information of use to them, that cannot be obtained elsewhere, in regard to horses, cattle, the dairy, planting, sowing, reaping, &c.
The House and Culinary Department has been gotten up with extreme care and attention, under the supervision of one of the best cooks and housekeepers in the land. Any housekeeper upon perusing it will find these words pleasant truths.
We call attention to the Appendix of the Household Department. These recipes are designed to assist the wives of working men especially and also to be a medium whereby young girls can be instructed in simple modes of economical cookery – a want which there is every reason to believe is greatly felt; at the same time it is hoped that it will be found useful in any household.
The Medical Department has been arranged by a physician of high standing and long and extensive experience and practice, and can be relied upon in all cases. This alone is well worth many times more than the cost of the book.
Every mechanic and every apprentice should have a copy of THE USEFUL COMPANION AND ARTIFICER’S ASSISTANT. A great variety of useful information for inventors, mechanics, &c. will be found in these pages. Much of the information contained in this work has been obtained at a large outlay and with a great deal of difficulty. Valuable trade secrets heretofore unpublished are now printed for the first time, and many of them will be found of great service.
Also, full and complete instructions are given in the arts and sciences: telegraphing … tuning the piano forte, reed organ, melodeon and seraphine … taking ferrotype, tintype and other positive pictures … making artificial flowers and fruit … leaf pressing, showing how they are made and preserved … etc.
There is also a large section for the benefit of “Grocers, Soap Chandlers, Tobacconists,” and other shopkeepers, detailing the proper care, dispensing and adulteration of commodities such as teas, coffees, tobacco, snuff and more. Also a chapter on Brewing, Wine-making, Bitters, Ales and more
But wait, there’s more! The Editors of THE USEFUL COMPANION AND ARTIFICER’S ASSISTANT were not content that readers should simply take their word for it, so they also include glowing testimonials from the press and from satisfied subscribers of the day.
See for yourself:
From Scientific American:
A handy volume of household, workshop and general information. It is well arranged and the recipes and instructions are carried down to the latest date. The compiler has covered very extensive ground. This book contains seven hundred pages of closely arranged matter.
From Newburg Journal:
This work is of an invaluable character, and a copy of it should be possessed by every one. It contains a vast amount of reliable information on a multitude of subjects, but many of the suggestions found between its covers, taken singly, will be found worth the price of the book.
It abounds in useful and important information for every one. The farmer, the mechanic, the student, the professional man and the household will find it a counselor of great value. The author has given a book, in this volume, of interest and value to all classes; no one can fail to find it of great worth. The Publishers have filled a want long felt by issuing this valuable work.
“I would not be without it for five times its cost. Everybody in the land should have one. The Cooking Recipes are splendid, and in great variety.”
“The Useful Companion was received by mail. I am more than delighted with it. The subject treating on Cage Birds alone is worth more than the price asked for the book. I have quite a number of birds, and have lost several by disease, which I don’t think would have been the case if I had been in possession of the work at the time.”
“The article on Telegraphy is just what I have been looking for. It is a perfect self-instructor in this useful and fascinating science. I shall recommend the work to my friends.”
“The department relating to Farmers and Gardeners is truly valuable, and although an old farmer myself, and pretty well posted, yet I find a vast deal of information of great value to me that I had no knowledge of before. I would not part with the book, if I could not get another at any price. The Stock Owners and Farriers department also interested me greatly.”
“The Household Department is splendid. I see that there are over Eleven Hundred recipes for culinary purposes, covering 116 pages. I have tried quite a number of them, and have been greatly pleased with the results.”
“I am a young housekeeper, and find the book just what I want. The cooking instructions are splendid, and an interesting feature is that it not only tells how to cook everything, but in the Appendix to the Household Department, the exact time required for cooking different articles is given.”
A well-known physician writes: “The Medical Department of your valuable work is greatly ahead of anything of the kind published. The beauty of it is that it does not treat of the very serious diseases and disorders which should not appear in books for family use, for, as you say, ‘at such times a physician should be consulted’; but it does treat intelligently of the ordinary diseases of every day occurrence, which most of the books pass over … It also gives the doses of medicine generally used (which I consider very important, as most of the books are silent on this point. The article on the ‘Treatment of Infants’ is, in itself worth ten times the price of the book.)”
“I consider the Useful Companion ‘an egg-ful of meat.’ This I consider as great a compliment as I can pay it. The Dyeing, Bleaching and Renovating Department is of priceless value to anyone living in the country.”
“I am an old bee-keeper. I appreciate your article on bees. It is correct in every particular, and valuable to any one who keeps bees.”
You’ve heard from the publishers that it’s an incredible book, from the subscribers, and from yours truly. If you find yourself still unconvinced – if you’re waffling in the least – I invite you to take a good, long look at the summaries I have prepared below. They cover many of the different departments of the book and describe the numerous recipes, receipts, procedures, etc., included within. If you don’t mind me saying so, I think you’ll be astounded that so much information could possibly fit between two covers.
Don’t miss your opportunity to own THE USEFUL COMPANION AND ARTIFICER’S ASSISTANT. offer early, offer often, or you just might find yourself offerding adieu to this treasure-trove of 19th-century know-how.
