Dublin Core

Title New American Cookery, or, Female Companion
Description This is the first cookbook published in New York City, and most of it was plagiarized. The anonymous author stole liberally from Amelia Simmons's American Cookery (1796), the first American cookbook. Plagiarism was frequent in early cookbook publishing, and Simmons's work was a popular target.
