Softcover in heavy stock pictorial wraps, 9 x 6 1/4 inches, unnumbered pages; covers toned and edge worn with some very light soiling, internally clean and sound with toned pages. "Being a choice collection of recipes wherein is shewn how the delectable practice of the Salem Dames from the year 1683, to 1730, until 1800 and 1900, may be restored with pleasure to those desirous of experiencing the delights of their cookery, together with a few housekeeping hints and numerous appropriate quotations." Recipes from four different collections, and starting with A Bill of Fare for Midsomer, from "The Compleat Cook's Guide" of 1683. A recipe called "To Make a Hedg-Hog Pudding" appears on the first page. On the second page there is a list of typical prices in early New England. The later recipes in the book are more recognizable to the modern eye. Great fun and an interesting peek into the past.
