The Household Receipt Book. Published by Loren B. Lord, Successors to Lord Brothers and Dr. H Baxter.

Burlington, VT: Loren B. Lord, [circa 1870].

Small octavo, unpaginated, 24 pages. FIRST EDITION. A little product cookbook, with testimonials for Dr. N. C. White's Pulminary Elixir. A bit strange, in that no one thought it inappropriate to make recipes adjacent to each other, such as "Lemon Pie" preceded by "Children Having Worms". Edges a bit brittle, some soiling throughout, otherwise near very good. Scarce. [OCLC locates no copies].

Price: $150.00
