2 editions published in 1830 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Having a two-fold object in view, the work herewith submitted to my countrymen is in two parts. By the first, which is nothing more than a familiar biographical sketch, they are brought acquainted with the man Jeremy Bentham: by the last, which may be regarded as an abridgment of his whole system of philosophy, with the Philanthropist, the Lawgiver, and the Statesman. Of the biographical sketch referred to, which precedes the following translation of his celebrated work on morals and law, by M. Dumont of Geneva, a small part has already appeared in the Yankee and other journals of our country; the remainder is entirely new. The whole of the second part has been carefully reviewed and compared with the originals, paragraph by paragraph. The readers (and the writers) of the Edinburgh, Quarterly, Westminster and North American Reviews, will now have what they never have had before--an opportunity of knowing the truth and the whole truth about the character and opinions, the philosophy and the faith of a man, whose followers--the calumniated Utilitarians--are now so numerous and so powerful, as to be reckoned a party in the British empire"--Preface.

The Virginia house-wife, or, Methodical cook by Mary Randolph( Book )

2 editions published between 1828 and 1830 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although Amelia Simmons's American Cookery claims the title, Mrs. Mary Randolph's The Virginia Housewife is often cited as the first American cookbook because the recipes originated in American kitchens, having left behind British traditions, ingredients, and methods. Virginia Housewife is also recognized as the nation's first regional cookbook with a focus on southern-style specialties, some appearing in print for the first time (Ochra Soup, Curry of Catfish, Gumbo, Chicken Pudding, Apoquiniminc Cakes). But Randolph also includes local variations of recipes from the West Indies, New England, Spain, and France, all reflecting the influence of many cuisines on Southern cooking. Diverse offerings from far-away places include Dough Nuts, Gaspacho, Ropa Vieja, as well as a number of delightful ice cream recipes including, black walnut, quince, pear, citron, and almond. An immediate success, Virginia Housewife was republished at least nineteen times before the Civil War.For Mrs. Mary, "The grand Arcanum of management lies in three simple rules: Let everything be done at a proper time, keep everything in its proper place, and put everything to its proper use." To this end, much more than just a cookbook, The Virginia Housewife is a complete lifestyle reference providing an introduction to the food, culture, and manners of the antebellum South, as well as housekeeping instructions on topics ranging from soap making to herb drying and silver cleaning⁰́₄everything that a woman of the nineteenth (or the twenty-first) century might desire to know.This facsimile edition of Mary Randolph's Virginia Housewife was reproduced by permission from the volume in the collection of the American Antiquarian Society, Worcester, Massachusetts. Founded in 1812 by Isaiah Thomas, a Revolutionary War patriot and successful printer and publisher, the Society is a research library documenting the life of Americans from the colonial era through 1876. The Society collects, preserves, and makes available as complete a record as possible of the printed materials from the early American experience. The cookbook collection includes approximately 1,100 volumes
