B000R93I58 Minor stains to covers and edges of pages. "244 years ago, 1758, a woman of genius wrote the encyclopedia of 18th century cookery and medicine. She had insights few possessed. She knew the effects of bacteria before most people of her day knew they existed. She had cures for illnesses our modern medicos are still searching for, such as cancer, the common cold, smallpox, baldness, rabies, plague, etc. Eliza's book was effectively lost and barely readable for over two hundred years. But with the 107 page dictionary we made and Mrs. Saxon's translation, adding many definitions to the text, you can read it in modern English. Light bumping and rubbing to corners and edges.
