Boston: Geo. B. Oakes & Company, 1869.

Octavo, 292 pages. FIRST EDITION. A medium-sized compendium of useful household recipes, some for cookery, but most not. Includes many recipes for tinctures, herbal essences, pickles, ketchups, other preserves, hair tonics, roof patches and more, my favorite being "To Make Artificial Volcanoes." Some light foxing throughout, otherwise very good, in publisher's gilt-stamped light brown cloth, with some rubbing and corner bumps, but still near very good. [Not in Bitting, Brown, or Cagle].
