The date and priority is indicated by Cook, who dates the first edition as 1895 (the second is 1906), and that this earlier printing was printed by the Roscoe Printing House in Jericho, VT, which this copy is. This small temperance cookbook contains recipes specifically thought to address the root causes of alcoholism.

We've seen two different wrappers on this title; this green paper, and the later, with a white textured paper, both with the same printed design. Fine.
