First edition. Famed cookbook author, Fannie Farmer's book dedicated to celebrating the holidays and special occasions with festive food and menus. Farmer (1857-1915) was the daughter of a printer and editor, and expected to complete higher education, but at the age of 16 she suffered a stroke which left her bedridden and in her parent's care for years. During a slow recovery she started cooking and turned her mother's house into a boarding house known for high quality. During her recovery, she attended Boston Cooking School where she became first an assistant and later principal of the school.
