The recipes are generally simple but this book contains lots of other cooking tips, like how to pick fresh fish or heat sugar for candy. They even reprinted the ads in the back; if you like antique ads you'll have to check this out.
interesting though small; measuring 5 1/4" by 4 1/8".
selections from the original cookbook with 40 pages of recipes and 7 pages of helpful hints to the young housekeeper. also has menu guides and the course lessons with prices in the back. (the lessons are only the names of the recipes that were taught. my copy has no ads.
