St. Paul, Minnesota: Webb Book Publishing Company, 1928.
Octavo (19.5 x 13.5 cm.), 151 pages. Illustrated. Revised edition; originally published in 1911, and reprinted in 1917. Many printings followed, and in 1942, the book was revised and expanded "containing, in addition to all usual features, a new nutrition section treating fully of vitamins, calories, proteins, and minerals, together with sixty-three carefully prepared menus analyzed for vitamin and calorie content.” The 1934 edition was revised by Farmer's Wife Magazine under the editorial control of Miriam J. Williams, and the 1942 revision and subsequent editions were credited to Bess M. Rowe, Woman’s Editor of The Farmer. Includes sections on canning and drying food and gives instructions for removal of stains. Age-toned but clean throughout; in green-decorated stiff gray wrappers, backed in green cloth. Very good. Scarce. [OCLC locates just one copy of this printing (NYU) and just nine copies of all printings prior to this].
