According to John Edgerton in his  Southern Food: At Home, on the Road, in History, this book was originally compiled in 1901, and “ Calling east Tennessee ‘the asparagus bed in the Tennessee garden-spot’, the women proceeded to put forth a diverse and interesting collection of recipes – and described them with an entertaining flair.” Old owner’s name (Anne Sharpe Archer) to half-title, which is browned and torn (though complete), small piece of front free endpaper lacking, else very good.
