Posted in response to "Vintage, Heritage and Older Cookbooks". My MIL had only one cookbook a 1928 edition of "The Boston Cooking School Cookbook" by Fannie Merrit Farmer. The first printing was in 1896 for a total of 3,000 copies. When MIL died, my SIL snatched the book. So I hunted through antique stores until I found a 1934 version here in AZ. Having the same cookbook and reading the recipes she used to make was a way of feeling close to her.
