"Containing a comprehensive account of the growth, manufacture and qualities of every article sold by grocers. Also, tables of weights and measures, and information of a general nature of value to grocers and country merchants." Dark brown textured cloth, gilt lettering, blind stamped. Moderately rubbed spine panel, rubbed and faded toward fore-edge, with a few chips to cloth on rear cover. Clean interior, modestly toned, a few stains on endpapers. Firm binding. 192 pp., indexed; this variation does not contain the coffee section at rear. Lacking color frontis. Interesting item relating to 19th-century merchantile, Boston imprint. Still quite decent copy, less wear than one would expect, and extremely scarce.
