Description

The Woman Suffrage Cookbook is the oldest fundraising cookbook in support of women’s suffrage. The cookbook begins: “This little volume is sent out with an important mission,” which we can assume has scope beyond “cookery, housekeeping, and the care of the sick” given when and why it was published. Here is one of it's recipes.
