Excellent recipes and commentary on old New Orleans Creole cookery and culture. Be warn for the experienced cook as recipes do not measure in cups and teaspoons. ( )

85.This is the very best of the reprints. I have scanned the actual cloth cover to show what is under the DW. Addt"l printing Gretna, La. : Pelican Pub. Co., 1990. "This gay perceptive account of all walks of New Orleans life in the 1870s and 80s includes the street cries of vendors creole songs & sayings collected by Hearn then unknown reporter & sketches he made of nola people for the first editions of the ITEM.

Fragile, now encased in a handmade archival box.
In an email from Pat McColloster, webmaster of the official Lafcadio Hearn's online site: What you have is a trade edition that was commonly given by department stores as a gift to purchasers of cooking utensil sets. You should hold onto it as a keepsake as few know about it. The recipes are actually from Mrs. Rudolph Matas, wife of the founder of Tulane Medical School's department of surgery. I believe she died young. Her bas relief is on the side of the medical school facing Charity Hospital. A real bit of history. ( )
