The Chicago Record Cook Book. Seasonable, Inexpensive Bills of Fare for Every Day in the Year.


Menus and recipes for every day of the year, “designed to furnish ‘Good Living,’ in appetizing variety, at an expense not to exceed $500 a year for a family of five, arranged so that remnants from one day can frequently be used with menus of the next.” (subtitle) Poster-style trade cloth bookbinding shows a maid serving a tea tray. Better than average copy of a notoriously fragile late Victorian American cookbook.
