This is a huge, comprehensive cookbook that has some of those charming chapters that make antique cookbooks so much fun to read. Some of those chapters are about food, like “Odd Dishes of Fish,” but most are about running the household, like “Table Waiting, or How to Train the Waitress,” “A Plea for the Little Dinner,” and (Gasp!) “Serving Dinner without a Maid.”
