Hard back book with linen covered boards and a laid on illustration with title and author’s name. 60 pages, plus four blank pages for addition recipes. Includes recipes for bread, cake, candy, cookies, desserts, drinks, eggs, fruit dishes, meat and fish, sauces, vegetables, and creamed vegetables.
This is an extremely difficult-to-find cookbook. Right now, I believe it is the only first edition, first printing copy available on the Internet. It still has an errata sheet tipped into the front of the book. The front cover is stained and worn, the back cover has remnants of brown paper that was apparently covering it. The front hinge is cracked, but holding. The back hinge is fine. The pages are mostly clear, with some very minor foxing and with all the pages uniformly tanned, especially at the edges. The binding is holding. The text block is intact.
