Synopsis
This major bibliography describes the American cookbooks in the Gernon Collection housed at the Lilly Library. 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.

Many 19th century popular works are represented in multiple editions, providing bibliographers and culinary historians with publishing histories of these books.
