Palmer House Cook Book, 1933, 1940



Palmer House Cook Book, by Ernest E. Amiet. Stated first John Willy edition, published in 1940 by John Willy, Inc., Chicago. Hard cover, 318 pages. Originally published in 1933. The subtitle is, “1044 Original Recipes for Home Use” and this book is emphatically that! Amiet created and tested the recipes, as the executive chef at the Palmer House, Chicago, the hotel that was Chicago’s symbol of elegance for decades, as it continues to be. This book is in mint condition, although it has no dust jacket. Hard back cover is perfect. Binding is tight. Pages are clean and clear.   The book looks like you just pulled it off the shelf at Barnes and Noble. Definitely gift quality!

(This cookbook is a perfect example of vintage cookbooks as an investment.  Five or six years ago, I could find a Palmer House Cook Book for $20.00 and sell it to you for $36.00.  Those days are gone!)
