How to Cook a Wolf: One of the most sought after of all American cookbooks! How to Cook a Wolf, by M.F.K. Fisher. Wonderful “plain cooking” recipes, plus clever, witty, and warm conversational text that made people feel better about cooking while under World War II rationing. First published by Duell, Sloan & Pierce in 1942. This copy is from the 1946 Duell, Sloan & Pierce, World Publishing Company, Cleveland, Ohio. Clearly marked “Seventh Printing, January, 1944.” Hard cover, 261 pp. NO dust jacket. Cover is nearly mint, with just a bit of shelf wear at the edges and corners. The binding is firm. The hinges are perfect. The pages are completely clean and clear, as are the pages, with the exception of very light, uniform tanning at the edges. This copy was published during World War II, under civilian printing conditions, so the paper was of relatively poor quality.
All in all, this is a great copy with the original publisher. I don’t think this book was ever read. Absolutely gift quality!
