This is the rarest cook book in my collection. The only other hard cover copy of this book I've ever seen in over 2 years of searching, is in the N.Y. Library and it is stamped, etc. This book is extremely scarce and just recently has had facsimiles published in paperback... 2012 as it was deemed to be "culturally important". Practical Recipes by Mrs. B.B. Cutter, First Edition, New Duffield & Co, copyright 1909, published August 1909. The book is in fabulous condition, 377 pages. There is a beautiful bookplate on the inside front cover (see photo). The recipes are outstanding: Good Apple Pudding, Kirsch Jelly, Okra Soup, Mutton Broth, Short Biscuit, German Potato Pancakes, Eggs in the Nest, Buckwheat Cakes, Spanish Oysters, Crab or Lobster Creole, Brandy Strawberries, Lemon Layer Cake, Pralines, Chocolate Caramels, Pop Robin, Barley Water, Mead, Higdum, Pickles, Spiced Cherries and so much more.
