Hello to the Forum!
I would like to buy a copy of The Settlement Cook Book: The Way to a Man's Heart
by Mrs. Simon Kander, to add to my collection, but before I do, I am seeking some advice on which incarnation to buy. Do you think an early edition (roughly 1901-1915, the most pricey) is best? Or a later revised edition, say, 1940's, 1950's, 1960's or 1980's edition or perhaps the new (1997) edition "updated for the modern cook--lighter, healthier, easier than ever before..."? I think there was one even published in 2006!
I tend to be traditional when buying something of value, whether it be a cookbook, or a piece of china, and try to buy the original if I can afford it, but I'm not opposed to a reproduction, reprint or later edition.
Which one do you have; do you like it and have you ever compared it to another era/edition?
Thank you for your input!
