I love that The White House Cookbook 1913 has been dedicated to "To the wives of our Presidents, those noble women who have graced the White House, and whose names and memories are dear to all Americans. This volume is affectionately dedicated to the author." The authors are Hugo Ziemann and Mrs. F. L. Gillette.
The copyright is 1899 and incluces: "cooking, toilet and household recipes, menus, dinner-giving, table etiquette, care of the sick, Health Suggestions, Facts Worth Knowing, Etc."
I can attest the the "Facts Worth Knowing and Etc."! Fascinating book!
This book includes little pieces of paper which I found endearing - such as a recipe written on the back of a receipt for the cleaners.
The binding is loose attesting to a lot of use.
On the last page of the index is a recipe for a "Beautiful White Cake".
There are ten pictures which in no way does this timeless book justice.
Publisher of this edition is the Saalfield Publishing Company.
