Boston: Press of Rockwell and Churchill, (1893).

Small pamphlet, 26, [2 (blank)] pages. FIRST EDITION of this separately published work. There was a first part, issued in 1890, and that earlier publication is summarized within this one. A report, by the creators, on the New England Kitchen, an experiment in cooking education by example, aimed at weaning immigrants off of their food traditions toward a "New England diet" (see Laura Shapiro's excellent Perfection Salad, pages 147 ff., although this publication is not cited in Shapiro's bibliography). Small chip to rear panel of printed wrapper; very light spotting, otherwise fine. [OCLC locates seven copies; not in Bitting, Brown, Cagle, or Cook].
