MEMORIAL EDITIONDR. CHASES RECEIPT BOOK and HOUSEHOLD PHYSICIAN (HIS LAST AND COMPLETE WORK) OR PRACTICAL KNOWLEDGE FOR THE PEOPLE BY DR. A. W. CHASE, M.D. CR1884-1887 PUBLISHED 1895 F.B. DICKERSON CO. Part cookbook, part moral advisor, part medical handbook, and heavily practical throughout, Dr. Chase's compendia claimed to contain just about everything a nineteenth century householder needed to know in order to survive. In fact, Dr. Chase's and the Bible were the two books most frequently carried across the country by the pioneers. Dr. Chase's was also sold in German translation, of which sample pages are included in this canvassing book, as savvy publishers were aware that many of these pioneers were recent immigrants whose only language was German. This book is in good condition, moderate wear to cover, top part of spine cover tattered, no writing or dog-ears, spine and hinges are tight. 865pgs.
