Antique Cookbook Mother James Rebound


This rare Antique cookbook is Mother James Key to Good Cooking with complete instructions and household management "the best housekeeping is that which produces the best results with the least expenditure of time and money".

This cookbook is in very good condition for the year. It has some water stains and the pages have yellowed. Overall it is amazing!

It is unique book. The original must have been in bad condition. As it has missing pages and has been rebound.

I would be happy to send more pictures..

Published in 1895 buy the Preston publishing company out of Chicago and has a copy right date of 1892

"We may live without friends, we
may live without books.
But civilized man cannot live without cooks;
He may live without love what is passion but pining?
But where is the man who can live without dining?
Owen Meredith
