THE AMERICAN COOKBOOK by Mrs. F. L. Gillette

THE AMERICAN COOKBOOK by Mrs. F. L. Gillette, was printed in 1887, it was once owned by my Great, Great Grandmother. I imagine it was a gift. Gr, gr Grandma was born in 1878, so the cookbook could have belonged to her mother, and was passed down to her when she married in 1893. All the recipes in this book were cooked over a wood or coal stove, some in a fireplace perhaps. I have several of these recipes posted in my recipe blog on blogspot called onemorerecipe.blogspot.com . Perhaps I should make a Recipe blog here also.
