Domestic life at Les Forges du Saint-Maurice / Luce Vermette.: R64-81/1982-58E-PDF

"This study presents a description of all those things in everyday domestic use at Les Forges du Saint-Maurice indicating the various types of activities involved. But such activities, objects and items of furnishings, being but elements of a larger whole, should be examined in relation to the life of the occupants of a house whose habits, lifestyle and social position they reflect. No study of this domestic life is possible, however, without, so to speak, a dissociation of the whole; one must provide a detailed description of the items, describe how people were housed, heated and lighted, how they prepared and consumed their food, how they cared for their health, how they dressed, what were their sports and games, and how they rested from their labours. This survey will be mainly concerned with two periods: the French régime (1729-60) and the Mathew Bell administration (1793-1845)"--Abstract, p. 6.
