Miss Parloa's Young Housekeeper. Designed to Aid Beginners. Economical receipts for those who are cooking for two or three. Illustrated.

Boston: Estes and Lauriat, 1894.

Octavo, 405 pages. Ads. First edition, second printing. Originally issued in 1893. While many of the author's earlier books included both economical and "rich" dishes, often clearly demarcated, this book collects solely the economical recipes aimed at the small family. Internally sound and tight, but quite a few pages have been discolored from news paper clippings laid-in. The publisher's black and silver decorated green oil-cloth cloth is very much darkened, with text barely legible, but the binding is sound; some offsetting to a few pages from clippings laid-in, otherwise near very good. [Bitting 357; Brown 1543; Cagle 496 (all the first or other earlier printings)].

Price: $90.00
