[MANUSCRIPT] [CULINARY] [REPURPOSED] Beginner English Grammar Book for Danes: Altered grammar book used as a cookbook

Condition: Marbled boards, leather spine. Good

Christiana : P. T. Mallings Boghandel, 1874. Hardcover. Marbled boards, leather spine. Good. Interesting and unusual repurposed grammar book that had a second life as a storehouse for recipes, pasted in, handwritten, as well as newspaper articles. Biddy Bye, a syndicated Woman's Page Editor, is identified as the author of some of these newspaper articles, which helps narrow the years this was being assembled to the mid 1910's. Boards cracked, nearly disbound.
