Description: Artist: EDWARD HENRY POTTHAST (1857-1927) Size: 12 1/4 x 17 1/2 in./31 x 44.2 cm G. H. Buek, NY While the poster notes that Mary Ronald's Century Cookbook "takes the place of all other cookbooks," and that it includes "photographic reproductions of actual dishes" among its 1000 recipes, a review from the time of its publication notes its full value: it "contains directions for cooking ... from the simplest forms to high-class dishes and ornamental pieces; a group of New England dishes furnished by Susan Coolidge; and a few recipes of distinctly Southern dishes." It also provides an etiquette guide for dinner parties: "how to serve dinners, table decorations, and many items relative to household affairs."
