Gun Club Cook Book or a Culinary Code for Appreciative Epicures, by Charles Browne, with illustrations by Leonard Holton. First edition. Published by Charles Scribner’s Sons, New York, 1930. Copyright 1930.  Hard cover. 298 pages. NO dust jacket. Pages are clean. Binding is sound. Excellent condition.  The Gun Club of the title was the Nassau Gun Club in Princeton, New Jersey, “organized for the purpose of shooting clay pigeons.”  When the club’s well-off members eventually built a new–and grand–building, complete with kitchen, “it wasn’t long before the non-shooting members exceeded the shooters and the menu became more of moment than the miss and out.  And if the shooting averages fell off a bit, who should worry?”
