Cleveland, The Standard Lighting Co., 1894. Hardcover. 249 pages. 22 x 15 cm. Late 1800's cookbook/trade catalogue putting forth the favorable qualities of the "vapor stove" made by The Standard Lighting Co. Vapor stoves burned multiple fuels (stove gasoline, kerosene, or distillate) with the advantage of quicker cooking times and less heat then coal or wood. The disadvantage of these stoves were the tendency to explode into giant fireballs of ignited gasoline vapor that could and would incinerate the entire house. 20 pages of illustrations accompanied by a cookbook teeming with recipes. Interior pages toned but clean. Boards stained and rubbed. White oilcloth boards. Very good. Item #2491

Price: $40.00
