New York: The Century Co., 1903.
Octavo, vii, 326 pages. Revised edition, originally published 1893. A training book for nurses, developed by an instructor in the Johns Hopkins Hospital Training School. A combination of text book and recipe collection, with some recipes drawn from Mrs. Lincoln's Boston Cook Book. The book has a fair number of annotations, written in an early, and neat hand, each annotating a recipe, or adding additional recipes. Some seem odd for a book addressing Invalid Cooking, including a long gloss on various types of alcohol which may be added to egg nog. A few blanks at the rear have been filled with notes on the distinction between drinks and liquid food, and a lengthy paragraph on "Foods difficult of digestion. "The author of these notes has added their name in ink, "Friend" to the fore edge. In blind-stamped green cloth, with red morocco title label. Near very good.
