A later of edition this influential and massively successful cookbook, originally published in 1901. The emphasis is American, with a smattering of hearty Eastern European Jewish fare. In earlier editions, the Jewish/Eastern European influence was more prevalent. This copy is extraordinary, in unused condition bright and fresh, with the original white, washable boards shiny and clean; the original publisher's green dust jacket, decorated with white, black, and red is very near fine, with only a touch of edge wear. Fine, in a near fine dust jacket, and rare thus. [Axford, page 363; DuSablon, America's Collectible Cookbooks, pages 65-67].
