Much shelf wear, soiling to covers. Second printing of the 1916 revision. Tan cloth with brown titles, preface by Fannie Merritt Farmer (1857-1915). 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Hard Cover. Little, Brown & Co did not predict good sales and limited the 1896 first edition to 3,000 copies, published at the author's expense.The book was so popular in America, so thorough, and so comprehensive that cooks would refer to later editions simply as the "Fannie Farmer cookbook", and it is still available in print over 100 years later. Every effort is made to ship all books and other items within 24 hours. Clean recycled packing material will be used when possible. The Book Shed has a been a member of the Vermont Antiquarian Bookseller's Association since 1997. An online bookseller with a bookshop sensibility!
