Community cook book compiled by Mary Davenport Bonner, who solicited recipes from a number of "club women" from across the country. Recipes are arranged by subject such as Bread, Meat, Oysters, Cheese, Puddings, etc. Each is attributed to its author, often noting the woman's location or importance, such as the first recipe which is contributed by Mrs. Lottie P. Martin, the wife of Governor John W. Martin of Florida. Occasionally the woman's club is also identified. Delicacies include Asparagus Salad in Celery Jelly, three recipes for preparing brains, and something called "Delicious Lunch Dish" which is comprised of shrimp, boiled trout, gelatin, Worcestershire sauce, and "1 large bottle Heinz India relish." A handful of copies in OCLC, primarily at Texas institutions.

Price: $150.00
