The Vital Question.

Worcester, MA: Cereal Machine Company, 1899.

Duodecimo, 147 pages. Illustrated with three pages of chromolithographed depictions of dishes. Stapled and on cords. Styled seventh edition. A product cookbook from the company that brought us Shredded Wheat. Almost every recipe, from Blueberry Shortcake to Welsh Rarebit, contains Shredded Wheat. A bit of dog-earing, and some fly-specks to the first plate, otherwise near very good in a good, somewhat mottled, red-printed printed green cloth wrapper, sewn with a cotton cord.

Price: $50.00
