Gourmet Bahamian Cooking, 1979, Marie Mendelson and Marguerite Sawyer:  Difficult-to-find, self-published cookbook from Green Turtle Cay, Abaco, Bahamas.  Compiled by Marie Mendelson and Marguerite Sawyer.  First published in February 1979.  This copy is from the 46th printing, published in September 2000.  (You’d think a cookbook that was reprinted 46 times would have more copies in circulation.)   264 pages.  This copy has some moderate shelf wear on the cover and on the title page.  All other pages are completely clean and clear.  Plastic comb binding is in perfect condition.

As you might expect, Gourmet Bahamian Cooking is particularly strong on fish and seafood recipes.   It has many turtle recipes and crawfish recipes, and well as recipes for conch and whelk.
