The dust cover is a little worse for wear but the book is delicious.
I adore old cooking and housekeeping books, and yes etiquette books. The older the better. This was originally published in 1901 and I cannot afford those books, this one was published in 1966 and originally sold for 3 dollars. I think the major updates acknowledged not having to boil calf hooves anymore for gelatin.
Thank you Big Daddy, he found it and had it shipped to me. And he got rid of the packing materials.
He is out shopping and cursing and shopping and cursing. Not thrilled about his trip back to Bangalore tomorrow and not happy that he did not get better seats as the flights were sold out. He is going to pack his sandwiches so he does not have to depend on the airline slop.
