Good Housekeeping Cook Book, 1942, 1944, in Nearly Mint Condition



Good Housekeeping Cook Book, 1942, 1944. Very difficult-to-find copy of the 1942, 1944 seventh edition of The Good Housekeeping Cook Book. Published by Stamford House, New York. Hard cover, 981 pages.   We’ve had many copies of this cookbook, but this is the first copy that has intact hinges!  Binding is good and tight.  The pages are all completely clear. Cover has minor shelf wear.  There are some small spots on the outside edges of the pages.   I don’t think this cookbook was never actually used.  I think it sat on the counter while a Betty Crocker or Better Homes and Gardens was used instead.
