Apx 8.5 by 6.25" and 2" thick w/. ILLUSTRATED with 4 colored and several b/w, including several of chickens and ducks! Nice embossed pictorial cover and spine. This book includes it all - one of my favorites I have posted.The first 488 pages are a cook book [everything you can imagine], then remedies, beverages, candies, cooking terms, poultry, flower garden, bees, misc. [mostly garden features], and a few more. Pages are generally clean and not nearly as toned as my pictures make them out to be. They look about as good as the Franklin title page. Generally very clean with only a few small spots.
Tips and spine ends are lightly worn. Some discoloration to back cover [looks good though].
Tips and spine with light wear. Binding and text are secure.
But the front cover is slack. Only a few very tiny. Rips or folds that I saw. Name written on front paste down.
Colored frontis is wrinkled bottom corner a bit and just starting to come loose. Generally very good though for age.DON'T MISS THIS SCARCE housekeeping BOOK. PLEASE Add me to your Favorites list.
