The American Home Cook Book

Originally published in 1854 by Dick and Fitzgerald in New York. This book is limited only to cooking and doesn't contain any other useful domestic advice. Contains several hundred recipes. The recipes range from cooking instructions for what would seem rather simple items, e.g., how to boil carrots (which interestingly enough never tells you to boil them or how to tell when done) to more complicated items but still without what would seem to be fancy recipes. Some of the ingredients, especially the meats, are no longer available but others can be purchased in the modern grocery. And it does contain the admonition that sounds like something the late Julia Childe would have come up with if you've ever seen her kitchen "Let there be a place for every article and every article be in its place."
