Chicago/Philadelphia: Monarch Book Co. (formerly L.P. Miller & Co.), 1894.
Large octavo, 527 pages. Illustrated. Index & table of contents. Later printing. Also published, starting in 1891, as the Imperial Cook Book, and in 1894 as the Star Cook Book, issued by the Lone Star Pub. Co. of Texas. Internally browned and brittle throughout, which is sadly par for the course for this work under all of its titles. Front free endpaper present but loose. In black-decorated and titled gray oil cloth with some soiling and rubbing. Previous owner's name in ink to front preliminary. A number of interesting articles and recipes are pasted-in to the front and rear matter, some rather interesting, especially a lengthy illustrated article on blindness in babies. Good only. [OCLC locates just three copies of this printing, and thirty three copies of all printings under all names; Bitting, page 463, later printing; not in Cagle].
