This selection of cookbooks from the 1820s shows some of the fine print quality of the period. To reach customers far and wide, Jan Longone publishes a catalog of the books available through her store. Much of her business is done by phone, with collectors and customers who are searching for a particular book or genre of cookbooks.

Among the scarce and out-of-print books on cooking and gastronomy in Jan Longone's collection is "The New England Yankee Cookbook," and one of the best and easiest recipes from it is the "Original Injun' Puddin'," she says. The pineapple on the table, she adds, was a symbol of hospitality in the period this book refers to.
