Rare hard to find cook book from 1886.
By Sarah T Rorer, principal of the Philidelphia cooking school. Published by Arnold and Company of Philidelphia.
It was written in in pencil as a Christmas gift in 1887, then given to someone else in 1898
This book does have some issues with wear, I have tried to photgraph some of them so you can see what I mean.
Book is hard cover and the cover is in okay shape. There is a scratch down the front and some lite dinging at the corners. However the book has pulled free from the binding. The first several pages are completly loose, most of the rest are still attached to one another. There is a little water staining at the front of the book on two or three pages. Also the book has been used and there is a bit of spatter throughout. One or two pages are torn and in general you can see it has been well used. But it is still completly legible throuhgout. Overall I don't want you to think it is a complete mess because it is not, most of the pages while a little dirty (hey it's been around for 122 years!) are actually in good shape. But I want you to be aware of the overall issues. If you need to see any more photos such as the page with ripping I can certainly take a few other photos and send them to you.
