This is a marvelous 12 1/4 inch tall x 9 1/4 inch wide hardcover book featuring recipes and culinary delights beginning with George and Martha Washington and ending at the Parent's Magazine 1969 publication date with Richard and Pat Nixon. Not a dry history lesson but rather an intriguing look into the lives of the Presidents, their wives and family. Dione Lucas is the expert for the culinary aspect of the book, with the Smithsonian Curator, Margaret Klapthor, setting the personal and social scene at the White House through the years. Inside the 220 pages, there are the early recipes, many of which followed English traditions like Beefsteak and Kidney Pie and English Plum Pudding. Over the years, Americans developed home grown recipes using the harvest from the land and dishes brought to the U.S.A. by newly arrived immigrants. Along with the photographs of food, there are portraits of the Presidents, their wives and in some cases, adult female children who took the reins in the social arena when their mothers, The First Ladies became incapacitated. The First Ladies Cookbook has some wear to the cover, especially in edging areas, but the spine is intact, and there are no tears or markings on any of the pages. You don't have to be either an historian or a gourmet cook to enjoy the contents of this book - all it requires is a curiosity about White House life, entertaining at small get-togethers to large head of state dinners, and an enthusiasm for a variety of food.

'New England Sampler' is New England, from Anne Hutchinson to Calvin Coolidge, from Witches to Ward Eights, from New Bedford Whalers to Newport snobs. It is a rich and racy picture of a people and a section that author Eleanor Early knows well and tells about with a pen that is sometimes barbed, at other times almost honeyed with a nostalgic feeling for old towns, homes or gardens. Juicy gossip! This is the story of New England Puritans as they really were, of its playboys, and its ladies, plain and fancy. Here is the story of Lizzie Borden who hacked her way into sinister fame, and Lydia Pinkham who concoted a famous medicine and a great fortune. Of John L. Sullivan, the Boston Strong Boy and a host of characters who may be curious but never dull. Information follows laughs until they practically stumble over each other. It's a book that sets tongues wagging with the delight of repeating all the grand and funny things that crowd the pages! It's a delighful read! The book is in Very Good condition with no apparent defects, inside or out! The dust jacket is Good overall, with some edge/corner wear. A previous owner's bookplate is pasted inside the front.
