Hard cover with 200 pages, including some local advertising. Near mint condition. Fly leaf is a little dingy. Other than that, mint condition. Pages are clean and clear. Binding is perfect. Cover is perfect.

Unfortunately, no one was given credit for the splendid cover artwork. The picture is embossed into the linen-covered boards, so the design is emphasized. The same artist must have done the many clever illustrations sprinkled throughout the cookbook.

Chapters on canapes and cocktails, soups, fish, salads and dressings, meats and fowl, vegetables, cheese and egg dishes, bread and rolls, cakes and cookies, pies and pastry, desserts, frozen desserts, drinks, candies, jams and jellies, pickles and preserves, plus whole meal oven cooking.
