Fun in the Kitchen: A Record Cook Book of Easy Recipes for Little Girls, 1927, First Edition, First Printing:  There are several children’s cookbooks that use anthropomorphized kitchen implements as illustrations.  I wonder if this was the first one.  This cookbook is said to be “by Mary Anne,” but I imagine the editors Marie P. Hill and Frances H. Gaines had a lot to do with it.  Illustrated by Marietta Labastille.  Published in 1927 by The Reilly & Lee Co., Chicago and New York.  This cookbook has a linen-covered hard board cover  and 92 pages.  Each recipe has a page called “My Record” where the young cook was supposed to fill in when she made it, how it turned out, and who eat the food.  Two or three of these pages have been filled in.  At the back are blank pages for “Contributed Recipes.”  Fifteen of these pages have been filled in with some pretty good additional recipes for dishes like butterscotch rolls, pepper relish, and sultan raisin sauce.  Tucked into the back is the Christmas card that came with this book.  I’ll leave it there for you, of course.

This cookbook is in excellent antique condition.  The hinges are sound, and the binding is tight.  Several of the pages have light stains.  The illustrations are absolutely charming, and there’s one on every page!  This is a rare children’s cookbook.  I can’t find another one on the internet.
