The White House Cook Book : a comparative cyclopedia of information for the home, containing cooking, toilet and household recipes, menus, dinner-giving, table etiquette, care of the sick, health suggestions, facts worth knowing, etc.

Oakland, Calif. Occidental Pub. Co. 1900.

Thick quarto, 590 pages. First edition, thus. A rare saleman's copy of a deluxe edition with chromolithographed plates with an unusual Oakland California imprint. At the rear of book is subscription information, with lined blank pages for customers to sign up. In white oil cloth binding, edges with faux marbling. Some wear to cloth edges, hinges a bit shaken, previous owner's name to front paste down, and one other page. Generally good or better. While not a scarce cookbook in and of itself, this edition is quite rare. [OCLC locate just one copy of this edition, surprisingly at the National Library of China].

Price: $250.00
