Boston:Estes and Luriat. 1894. An early edition, originally published in 1893.. vi+405pp. With last two blank pages covered in handwritten recepies. Signed/inscribed on 1st free end-page by the author. Hardcover. Boards are soiled and shelfworn, with title on spine rubbed off, and lightly worn along edges, spine ends and edge points. Internally, end-pages ligtly age-toned with author inscription to 1st free end-page, and hand written recipies to last two pages, otherwise in very good clean condition. Not until the index did I find just a couple margin notes. The binding is tight with front hinge just starting at top edge, but rear lower hinge has some insect damage which has laid bare to mesh the lower 2 inches, affecting the bottom 2 inches of the last free endpage as well. Overall, in very good condition.
