VintageThingiesThursday~ Old book


My SIL gave this to me last year and I kept it. I didn't take time to browse the pages but today as I was dusting my bookshelves I was curious. My eyes caught the year when I read the copyrighted in printed on one of the page here. 
                                
                                                            Copryrighted, Dec. 22, 1903

                     And the Imprimatum was sign by the Archbishop of New York at that time in 1904

                                      More to see here at Vintage Thingies Thursday

Nothing even remotely close to that old in my house. Guess that comes with moving so often...

I know that you are thrilled that you stopped and looked closely at the book today! I know I would be!!
It does pay to dust, sometimes.:)
Fondly,

That's an interesting title. I haven't seen a book referred to as a cabinet before.

Interesting use of the word 'cabinet'! maybe it's like a compilation.

First of all, your blog header made my tummy growl! That food looks soooo good. Are you Filipino? I used to work with a Filipino lady who made some type of little egg rolls that were to die for!!!

What a special treasure your book is! It's amazing to think how many owners it has had over the years.
