Lily Wallace New American Cook Book, 1941, 1946: Copyrighted first edition was published in 1941. This copy is from the 1946 printing. I’m pricing this as a cook’s copy, but it is a strange one. The outside has a great deal of shelf wear, and I’ve mended the hinges with librarian’s tape. But inside the pages are almost completely clean, as if the cookbook was almost never used. Clay coated pages. 931 pages. Pages universally tanned at the edges. Great illustrations.

At VintageCookbook.com we try to provide you with your mother’s cookbook! I know lots of current recipe bloggers write proudly that their recipes are “not from your mother’s cookbook.” We think the recipes in your mother’s cookbook provided food that was nutritious and warm and colorful and just plain yummy! We know that just looking at the cover of your mother’s Woman’s Home Companion Cook Book makes you feel good. Holding her Betty Crocker Cookbook, or her Better Homes and Gardens, or Good Housekeeping Cookbook in your hands is better than nostalgic. And cooking some of those dishes for your children will pass on a great tradition.
