Food and Cookery for the Sick and Convalescent.

Boston: Little Brown and Company, 1904.

Octavo, 289, [16] pages. Index. Publisher's advertisements. Photographically illustrated. FIRST EDITION. While best known for the Boston Cooking School Cookbook, Fannie Farmer had more than a passing acquaintance with issues of health, convalescence and medicine. Farmer suffered a debilitating stroke following high school, and struggled for years to regain her mobility. After her studies at the Boston Cooking School she took summer courses at the Harvard Medical School, where she later would lecture. The school she founded under her own name, Miss Farmer's School of Cookery, developed special equipment for the invalid or convalescent. ExLibris the Frederick C. Adams Publick Libary (discard stamp present), with the library's bookplate and loan records to the rear endpapers, and small paper shelf label on spine; no other marks. Some light wear and fading to the green publisher's decorated binding; otherwise, very good. [Axford page 162; Wheaton & Kelley 2085; Cagle 248; Bitting page 153 (later edition)].
