(copyright 1894) · Philadelphia
First edition: Oyster recipes, printed in dark green ink. Included here are curried oysters, oyster tarts, and oysters on mushrooms. This is one of the redoubtable and prolific Mrs. Rorer's less common publications, particularly in its first appearance — Bitting and Cagle and Stafford => fail to list this title at all, while Brown finds only the 1903 revision.
Not in Bitting, Brown, or Cagle & Stafford. Publisher's terra cotta cloth, front cover with "silver"-stamped title and small leaf decoration; spine and extremities showing mild wear. Hinges (inside) unobtrusively reinforced some time ago. => A crisp, bright, tight copy. (Inventory #: 36487)
