Found my 1906 version, previously owned by a Mrs. Blanche Rooney (according to the inscription), in a dusty little antique shop in S.TN/N.AL summer of 2011. Loved this book, partly because it was well used and even had a small "valentine" in it as well as a week of dishes straight from the book. I loved the history of the book and it really made me step back and take note of cooking and its history. Well worth a flip through.
My copy is one handed down from my great-aunt Dorothy. After reading commentary from Julia Child and others about how Americans viewed food in the early 20th century, this is certainly eye-opening with all the hallmarks of poor construction. Someone would need a thorough education about the details of cooking procedure, timing, ingredient handling and so on to even know where to start.
