Fanny Farmer.... NOT the first American Cookbook. I wish folks would get this right. Elizabeth Ellicott Lea of Sandy Spring MD. published her cookbook ""Domestic Cookery"" in 1845. You would be hard pressed to find an original copy, but here is a facsimile copy of the 1859 edition... https://www.ebay.com/itm/362541059544?var=0&mkevt=1&mkcid=1&mkrid=711-53200-19255-0&campid=5338767596&toolid=20006&customid=4581939845909866_377870146

I'm well....still surviving cancers, according to my doctor today. So, I'm keeping in touch while I can, GK. And I hope to hear another "Messiah" performance during Thanksgiving season to remind me of how grateful I am.
