William A. Alcott The Young Woman's Guide. This book is not called "The Young Woman's GUIDE," with the expectation that she will consider it her only or even her principal guide.
William A. This work was begun, soon after the appearance of the Young Man's Guide-and was partially announced to the public. For reasons, however, which I have not room to give in this place, it was thought proper to defer its publication till the appearance of several other volumes in the same spirit, involving more particularly the relative duties. The Bible should be the principal guide of every person, young or old, male or female. Parents, also, are invaluable as guides.

Every young woman should, therefore, study these subjects for herself
Every young woman should, therefore, study these subjects for herself. Such books as those of Miss Sedgwick-her "Poor Rich Man, and Rich Poor Man," and her "Means and Ends"-will prepare the way, or will at least enkindle the desire, for the kind of knowledge of which I am speaking. She will then desire to read the works of the Combes, and perhaps, ere long, some of the other popular books of our day, which treat of Physiology and Hygiene. And yet how few are the young women who make it a matter of conscience to perform every thing they do-the smaller no less than the larger matters of life-in such a way as to meet the approbation of an internal monitor.
Alcott William Andrus. Excerpt from book: CHAPTER IV. LOVE. Doing every thing in the best possible manner. Every person and every occupation susceptible of improvement, indefinitely. Doing well what is before us. Anecdote illustrative of this principle. Two great classes of persons described. Hopes of reaching the ears of the selfish.

The Young Man's Guide has been added to your Cart. Between what Alcott reports and what the informed reader already knows of boy character building, virtually all of the history of traditional American values is within grasp. Keep in mind that not many people were eligible to vote then. Women CEO's could be counted on the fingers of no hands. Because of those anachronisms and more, I'd bet some unfortunates today will find the book laughable, as they judge Alcott by 2010 sensibilities. That's often a mistake.
