Lessons in Cookery: Book Two, Diet for Adults.

Chicago, New York: Rand McNally.

Octavo (23 x 16.5 cm.), 250 pages. Illustrated. FIRST EDITION. The second book in the four volume 'Home Economics Series", which consisted of: book 1, Food Economy; book 2, Diet for Adults; book 3, Diet for Children; book 4, Diet for Invalids. The author, Frances Elizabeth Stewart, was "Instructor, in Home Economics, Murray F. Tuley High School, Chicago". The book was intended for high school students studying home economics, and the book is arranged as a series of lesson plans for use by teachers. In keeping with the pre-occupations of the time, the book begins with an outline of the caloric values of foods, and then becomes a more recognizable cookbook, with sections on meats, flour-based foods, fried foods, candies, dried foods, soups, vegetables, salads, etc. ~ Very light soil to a few pages, otherwise fine; in publisher's black decorated gray-brown cloth. Overall, near fine. With a rubber ownership stamp of the Manchester High School, dated "Sep 27 20" but clearly never used by students, or likely, anyone else.

Price: $50.00
