This is one of my favorite cookbooks. I have a copy of this exact edition, but it is slowly disintegrating from years of use(by 4 generations of cooks).
It literally has everything in it. The Boston Cooking School was a finishing school for women. These aren't the recipes that would be taught at Cordon Bleu, but instead represent the state of homecooking around the turn of the century. Some of the recipes have an obvious New England tilt, but there are plenty of recipes which are from more rural areas of America.
One complication of using such an old cookbook is that of ovens and fires. First temperatures are never given. Instead you will find slow, moderate, hot. These are about 300,350,400 respectively. The bigger problem is that old wood and coal fired ovens were more configurable. You could get heat not only from below as most ovens do today, but also from the top and sides by rearranging dampers within the oven which isn't possible with todays ovens.
Ingredients might take some serious hunting(figuratively and literally) to find these days. There are animals in here that you won't find at your local market and plant material that isn't available anywhere(look at the chocolate recipes for a good example).
Anyway its interesting to flip through a few pages and look at some pictures. It might take some experimentation to get a few of the recipes working, but 80% can be used exactly as written.
