Nashua, New Hampshire; [Germany]: [White Mountain Freezer Co., 1898; [circa 1900].
Squarish, octavo-sized notebook (17 x 21.5 cm.), 64 pages. Illustrated with two pasted-in clippings from the original book. A handwritten and likely professional translation of the original American publication of Frozen Dainties as Made with the White Mountain freezer from Recipes by Mrs. Lincoln [the title page is translated in full] (White Mountain Freezer, 1898). With fifty recipes for ice cream, sorbet, etc. as well as descriptions of the maker, a price list, comments etc. The two clipped illustrations are a view of the "Improved" White Mountain Freezer, and a detailed image of Repairs for the White Mountain Freezer, depicting twenty-seven replacement parts. One wonders if the translation was intended to accompany the release of White Mountain Freezer's popular ice-cream maker? We have been unable to locate any record of a German translation of Mrs. Lincoln's promotional work. The identity of the translator is hidden in a tiny hand on the title page. ~ Final blank page of the book is lacking about one quarter of its surface; a bit of age-toning and a few small corner creases. Bound in black oil-cloth with the usual adhesions, including two manuscript fragments, "fur Philipp Otto" and a section of a letter in German. Overall, quite sound and very good.
