Boston/New York: Lee & Shepard/Lee, Shepard, and Dillingham, 1875.
Squarish octavo, 568 pages. First edition. A collection of recipes, drawn from various sources, including French, German and English cookbooks, as well as "written receipt-books of families famous both at the North and South for their savory cooking." The compiler, Elizabeth S. Miller, hails from Geneva, New York, and dedicates the book to the "Cooking Class of the Young Ladies' Saturday Morning Club". A few neat handwritten notes, and some age toning to the text block. Some wear to the head and foot of the spine. In black and gilt-decorated beveled boards. Near very good. [Not in Bitting or Cagle].
