Rasta Cook Book: Vital Vegitarian Rasta-Far-I, Alex Maccabeus, First Edition, First Printing, 1979:  Very difficult-to-find first edition, first printing copy of the Rasta Cook Book, published in 1979 by Naturo Products, Vancouver, BC.  24 pages.  Booklet in excellent vintage condition.

Attractive copy of this Rastafarian cookbook, originally available by mail order only through the Vancouver-based Naturo Products. “This book is adapted for those outside Jamaica where the wealth of tropical foods are not easily available. Still yet by following these simple recipes that I-Tal Caribbean flavor can be had in any part of the world.” In addition to 35 vegetarian recipes, the volume is full of Rastafarian proverbs, Biblical quotes, and biographical feature on Haile Selassie I and Marcus Garvey. Heavily illustrated throughout with photographs, drawings and Rastafarian symbols.  Mentions of Bob Marley and the Wailers and Peter Tosh.  Among the many quotations and slogans, here’s my favorite:  “Thunder is Impressive But Lightning do the Job.”
