Larkin Housewives Cook Book 1915-16 -17, 1923
I have this copy in my possession. It belonged to my mother and now belongs to me. It is good shape with all pages. I love looking at the information, old recipes, special instructions and cooking from it with all the nostalgia it brings. It is a hardback that my mother used for a very long time. She passed away 2 years ago at age 88. In addition to being a wonderful wife and mother, she was also a minister's wife and made many wonderful dishes from this book. Thank you Larkin for being a part of my life.
