Settlement Cook Book, 1920 Edition with Early Cover compiled by Mrs. Simon Kander, with tested recipes from the Milwaukee Public School Kitchens. Originally published by the Settlement Cook Book Co., Milwaukee, Wis. 596 pp. This is the cookbook with “The way to a man’s heart” at the top of the front cover–the early cover with two pairs of young cooks, not the cover with the winding trail of young cooks heading into the heart at the top of the cover. Everything from how to build a camp fire and stew rabbits (!) to “Ices, Frappes and Sherbets in Mechanical Refrigerators.” This copy was published in 1910, the fourth edition, revised and enlarged from the first edition. This copy was published by the American Crayon Company, Sandusky, Ohio, and 9 Rockefeller Plaza, New York. The title page says, “This is a Mary Perks Book.” I have no idea what that’s about.
This is the only edition of the Settlement Cook Book that I know of with a blue cover. The cover does have a lot of shelf wear. The fly leaf has a corner torn off. The rest of the cookbook is in mint condition. Pages are completely clean and clear. Binding is very tight. Hinges are perfect. This edition was printed without the advertising that other editions had.
