Catering for Special Occasions, 1911: Catering for Special Occasions with Menus and Recipes, 1911: by Fannie Merritt Farmer. Published by David McKay, Publisher, Philadelphia. Illustrations by Albert D. Blashfield (and Blashfield’s little angels are worth the price of the book.) Hard cover, with the best front cover picture we’ve ever had. 240 pages. First edition, first printing. Excellent vintage condition. Pages lightly and uniformly tanned. Binding is loose, but holding. Frontiespiece has pulled out of the binding, but is still here and in good shape. Top of the pages still have the gilt edging! Pages are very heavy rag stock paper. Great gift! Just shouts out “antique cookbook.”
(Sorry about the price. I used to be able to offer this book for $36.00. But, collectors have discovered the charm of Fannie Farmer’s Catering for Special Occasions, and copies are becoming almost impossible to find.)
