Among the cookbooks listed is the first edition of Amelia Simmons' "American Cookery" (1796), a second edition of Mary Randolph's "The Virginia Housewife" (1825), Robert Roberts' "The House Servant's Directory" (1827), the first book by an African-American to be commercially published; and Eliza Leslie's "Seventy-five Recipes for Pastry, Cakes, and Sweetmeats" (1828) among many others.
