ANTIQUE 1887 WHITE HOUSE COOKBOOK ILLUSTRATED 1890
This book is no longer for sale (sold on 2007-04-14)
Price : US $15.50
This is a very rare book, printed in 1890, remarkable for its comprehensive look at America and American life. It is a terrific source book for historians of both the Presidency and of American cuisine. In addition, it offers a look at daily life before refrigeration and most modern conveniences. The advice for the 19th-Century American housewife on a wide variety of topics is also gold for a historian.
The book is in fair condition, the binding is worn, the covers are loose, there are some food stains, but the illustrations and content are marvelous.
Thank you for looking, good luck bidding!
