My Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book, 1930, 1935, Binder Edition: Three-ring binder edition of My Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book. Silver binder cover. Published by Meredith Publishing Company, Des Moines, Iowa. 1930 edition reprinted in 1935. Tabbed section dividers in near mint condition. Astonishingly, this cookbook is in near-mint condition! The pages are lightly tanned, but they are all cleaned and unmarked. The binder has just a few dings. The title page is a bit dingy. But over-all, this cookbook is in excellent vintage condition. The bride who received this cookbook must have had another one she liked better! There’s an entire section–with its own tab–of pickles! Lots of information on canning and preserving, of course.

We know that just looking at the cover of your mother’s Woman’s Home Companion Cook Book makes you feel good.
