Maria Parloa was the author of 10 books on cooking and housekeeping, the founder of two cooking schools, a lecturer on food topics, and an early figure in the "domestic science" (later "home economics") movement. She can be considered the first "celebrity cook". She promoted herself and her books and came to endorse various products. This is her second book, a guide to camping out. She starts with the tent, then goes to the camp stove and it's equipment as well as lists for food stuffs. She gives sources for equipment - early endorsements, perhaps? She sums up her camping philosophy: "Parties scorning the idea of bothering with so many things when simply going out to rough it, will find it is better to see that everything is provided before starting: even then, they will find camp life rough enough." Recipes include firds, fish, meats, vegetables, breads, desserts, even some recipes for the sick, such as Rice Water for Diarrhea. Be prepared for whatever happens! The book is in VG conditon, square and securely bound, no writing, light age toing. There is a small stain across the top left edge of the front cover. There is a very small dent that starts on the title page and goes to about page 20. The owner probably never went camping! ; 16mo 6" - 7" tall; 91 pages
