I just rescued a 1906 copy of "Everyday Luncheons" from the trash. The owner sais she "has too much stuff" and was going to throw it away. I'm just a general bibliophile, not specifically interested in antiquarian cookbooks, but I count this as a prize.

Thanks for the great information about Olive and her sad life.

My name is Louise and I must say, I'm delighted to have discovered your blog. I don't have time to stay now as I am in the middle of uploading to Library Thing, which I see you are on also. I just discovered the site and am so excited! As a matter of fact, I found you in search of info on Celestine Eustis. What a wonderful wealth of information you offer. I'm bookmarking your blog and will return when I have more time:)

Thanks so much for sharing...
