(Florida) A.B.C. Cook Book.

32 pp. Pictorial wrappers. First Edition. Newark, NY: W.C. & F.D. Burgess, 1914.

This appears to reprint the contents of the Women's Exchange Cook Book of 1911, but was published for Hallenthalls Riverside Bakery in Jacksonville, Florida, and with emphasis on Florida ingredients, such as orange marmalade, green tomato conserve, how to pare a pineapple, date souffle, etc. Small pieces of wrappers lacking at corners, creasing and irregular fading, else a good copy of a fragile cookbook, possibly the earliest published for Jacksonville.
