1980 Good Housekeeping Illustrated Cookbook: The Good Housekeeping Illustrated Cookbook, edited by Zoe Coulson. Published in 1980 by Hearst Books, New York. Oversized, hard cover. White leatherette cover–the bridal edition! (Actually, off-white.) Has two red ribbon place markers. No dust jacket. 512 pages. Cover has a few smudges. Binding is perfect. Hinges are perfect. Pages are all clean and clear.
The jury is still out, I suppose, on the “best” American cookbook at the end of the twentieth century, but many people would vote for this one. The many illustrations are very, very clear. The organization is outstanding. And, the food photography is brilliant.
