FANNIE FARMER TRIVIA

Fannie Farmer had to pay the printing costs of her cookbook, The Boston Cooking School Cook Book, because Little, Brown and Company were not very enthusiastic about publishing another cookbook. But she also kept ownership of the copyright and became wealthy, much to the regret of Little, Brown. By 1977, over 4 million copies had been sold, outselling any other book published by Little, Brown and Company.
