Description

Green Mountain White Ribbon Cook Book, c 1895, Woman’s Christian Temperance Union of Vermont: Slim cookbook that’s quite rare. We estimate the date to be about 1895, but understand that’s an estimate. This cookbook was published by the Woman’s Christian Temperance Union of Vermont at the height of the WTCU’s campaign “to destroy the tree of intemperance in America.” The subtitle is “Especially adapted to young housekeepers and busy women. Containing choice gleanings from many households.”

The cookbook has about forty pages, with the inside of the front cover explaining the WTCU’s position against alcoholic beverages. t has many, many advertisements for Vermont merchants. Ads like, “Do your hens fail to lay?”

This cookbook is in excellent vintage condition. The back hinge is a little loose, and it has been reinforced with clear librarian’s tape. The title page, at the front of the book, is caught in the staples of the binding, and the page tore a bit at both staples. That page also has a corner torn off. The rest of the pages are unharmed. Several pages of the book have a minor stain, but all the pages are completely are completely legible.
