One of the most important books in the history of the 19th century domestic design was Charles Eastlake's Hints on Household Taste. First published in 1868, it went through many editions and republications, and served as a basic source for philosophy of design for hundreds of architects, manufacturers, and decorators, as well as for perhaps hundreds of thousands of home owners. As the preeminent book which told its contemporaries what was proper, beautiful and efficient, it had immeasurable influence on many areas of Victorian life.
