Aunt Babette's Cook Book. Foreign and Domestic Receipts for the Household. A Valuable Collection of Receipts and Hints for the Housewife, Many of which are Not to be Found Elsewhere. Forty-Sixth Thousand
New York: The Bloch Publishing Company, 1914. Thick octavo, xxvi, 520, 38 pages. Later printing. With the addition of the separate work, Home Confectionery, at the rear. Aunt Babette's Cook Book is considered the first successful Jewish-American cookbook, first published by the major Jewish publisher Bloch in 1889, and reissued for nearly thirty years until it was replaced by Greenbaum's The International Jewish Cookbook. Aunt Babette's Cook Book was far from strictly Kosher, and included a large number of recipes for treif, including pork and shellfish, indicating the more assimilationist tendencies of the Reform Jewish movement of that moment. Internally very good, all edges red, in scuffed and edge worn brown cloth, with black titling to spine and front panel. [OCLC locates only two copies of this printing, and forty four for all pre-1918 printings; not in Bitting or Cagle]. (Inventory #: 4942)
