1772 Cookbook Celebration

July 28, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT


Lincoln County Historical Association is pleased to announce the publication of the first facsimile edition of Susannah Carter’s “The Frugal Housewife,” first published in Boston  by Edes and Gill
in 1772.

Our copy has an unbroken provenance since Major Samuel Goodwin bought it on Aug. 28, 1772 , through his family and descendants until it came into the ownership of the LCHA in 1954.  This edition has a few missing pages (due to heavy use) but is mostly intact. And it does include the two pages of engravings on how to prepare poultry and small game for roasting (10 in all) created by Paul Revere.

This facsimile edition will be introduced for sale at a celebration to launch the cookbook at Pownalborough Court House on Friday, July 28 at 2 p.m.
