Edition[edit]

The 1918 edition was the third, and it was copyrighted by Cora D. Perkins. The second edition came out in 1906. Is there a reference for the statement that the 1918 edition was the last one completely written by Farmer herself? The 1918 edition includes "War-time recipes"; these could not have been authored by Farmer since the United States did not enter WWI until after her death. The link to the Internet Archive at Swap-Meet is to one copyrighted by Mary B. Perkins. Was there more than one 1918 edition? Which one is Bartleby's? Eclecticology 18:05, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

I got my information from http://www.bartleby.com/87/ at Bartelby. I don't know, they could be incorrect. —Quadell (talk / swapmeet) 13:27, 5 February 2009 (UTC)
