Scarce World War I-era cook book for this ladies' club in the small town of Denison in western Iowa. With hundreds of recipes, about half which focus on sweets and desserts, each accompanied by the name of the contributor. This is the stated fourth edition, of which we locate two copies in OCLC, at the Huntington and SMU. We locate one copy of the first edition, published in 1900, at Harvard, and none of any second or third edition.
