Purefoy Hotel Cook Book: True and Tried Recipes of Real Southern Cooking, by Eva B. Purefoy, owner of the Purefoy Hotel, Talladega Alabama, in 1938. This copy from the edition revised by Purefoy with the assistance of Louise P. McClung and published in 1960. Frankly, I’m not quite sure how this book became one of the most sought-after cookbooks in America, but it is! Published privately by Roberts and Son, Birmingham, Alabama. Plastic comb binding, card-board cover, 154 pages. Included in the same volume, Just Ask Me! A Collection of Household Hints, also by Eva B. Purefoy and Louise P. McClung. Book is in nearly as-new condition. Some very light soil on the cover. Pages are all clean and clear. Binding is firm.
