Wear to cover, text block shaken with some pages loose, but overall clean interior. This publication was issued in 10 parts, but not all were bound into this volume: from the table of contents it is apparent that missing sections are "Dessert and Table Decoration", "The Kitchen" and "The Management and Duties of Servants." Recipes for everything from vegetables to jams.
