About 100 pages of recipes written and compiled by Ruth Fisher Holbrook, Food Consultant to the Holbrook House, a Chicago restaurant. Stated first edition, first printing, but with no date. Self-published by Holbrook House via Paragon Press, Inc., Chicago. Signed with a general greeting, “Fondly, Ruth Fisher Holbrook.” Cookbook is in absolutely mint condition, as-if-new.
