Up for auction is a 1891 printing of the classic American cookbook Mrs Lincoln's Boston Cook Book first published in 1883. Mrs. Lincoln was the first principal of the Boston School of Cookery. Her most celebrated student was Fannie Merritt Farmer who inspired by Mrs. Lincoln went on to write one the most famous cookbooks of all time The Boston Cooking - School Cook Book in 1896.
This rare copy is in good condition. The first 3 page are seperated from the binding but the text is complete. Minor edge wear and slight yellowing, not bad for a book that was printed when Benjamin Harrison was president.
