Rutland, Vt. The Tuttle Co., 1916.
Octavo, 187 pages. Illustrated. First edition. Recorded by his daughter Emily Marie Haddad, with the assistance of Bernice Rachel Tuttle; with an introduction by John Abner Mead. While much of the book is the autobiography, the final thirty-five pages are given over to Syrian recipes, supplied by Mrs. George Haddad. One of the earliest – if not the earliest –appearance of Middle Eastern recipes published in the US. Syrians and other Arabs had been emigrating to the US since the time of the Civil War, but a significant influx – nearly 90,000 Syrians – took place between 1899 and 1919. At the time, the term "Syrian" included people from a larger piece of territory as it had been defined in the Ottoman Empire, stretching from the mountains of Southeastern Asia to the Horn of Africa. Publisher's gilt-decorated black cloth slightly faded, otherwise fine. [OCLC locates thirty-seven copies; not found in Newman, Melting Pot or Wertsman, What's Cooking in Multicultural America].
