Overview

This Vintage Cookbook is a reprint of the 1909 edition. A fine example of a charity cookbook. It represents the growth of the women's movement, in general, and the suffrage effort, in particular. From the dedication ("To the first woman who realized that half of the human race were not getting a square deal...") to the pithy pro-suffrage quotations at the beginning of each chapter to the articles on the role and formation of the General Federation of Women's Clubs and the Progress of Woman's Suffrage - this book is a milestone for tracing the involvement of women in the greater world.

But, it is also a splendid cookbook. The recipes are all attributed. There are chapters on Sailor's Recipes, Vegetarian Foods, German Recipes and a Mountaineer's Chapter.
