Publisher Comments:

At the turn of the 20th century, it was popular to publish books that professed to include virtually all knowledge to date. Most popular of the genre were the books of "secret" recipes, revealing industrial secrets to the layman.

First published in 1895, Lee's Priceless Recipes covers an extraordinary range in its 3000 secrets.There are several hundred formulas for stains, paints, waxes, and false finishes of all types, as well as advice on tanning hides, preserving eggs, drying fruit and purifying rancid butter.
