New James Beard: Imagine being so well-known that your book would have the title, “The New Jane Jones” or “The New Sam Smith.” NOT “The New James Beard COOKBOOK,” mind you. Just “The New James Beard.” That’s how famous James Beard was. This was his second “big” (or comprehensive) cookbook, after volumes and volumes of “smaller” cookbooks, of course. Published by Alfred A. Knopf, New York, 1981. Hard cover with dust jacket. 626 pages. First edition. Near mint. Gift quality. (I have an entire stack of this first edition. That’s why the price is so astonishing.)
