Settlement Cook Book, 1941, Nearly As-If-New Condition!



Settlement Cook Book, 1941, Nearly As-If-New Condition: This copy of the Settlement Cook Book is in astonishingly good condition! The cover of the book is nearly perfect, with no spots or stains.   The index at the front of the book is thumb indexed. The hinges are in great shape. The binding is sound. Every page is clean and clear.  It’s a wonderful copy.

This historic cookbook was compiled by Mrs. Simon Kander and published by the Settlement Cook Book Co., Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It is from the twenty-fourth edition, enlarged and revised, published in 1941. I doubt if anyone ever used this cookbook. Hard cover with 596 pages, plus several pages of entertaining advertisements at the back. Definitely gift quality! Better than these images, actually, because there are smudges on the scanner! Yes, this is the “way to a man’s heart” cookbook!

Please don’t forget to click on “Recipes” at the top of the Homepage. You’ll find one great recipe from many of the great antique cookbooks, including the Settlement Cook Book!

At we try to provide you with your mother’s cookbook! I know lots of current recipe bloggers write proudly that their recipes are “not from your mother’s cookbook.” We think the recipes in your mother’s cookbook provided food that was nutritious and warm and colorful and just plain yummy! We know that just looking at the cover of your mother’s Woman’s Home Companion Cook Book makes you feel good. Holding her Betty Crocker Cookbook, or her Better Homes and Gardens, or Good Housekeeping Cookbook in your hands is better than nostalgic. And cooking some of those dishes for your children will pass on a great tradition.
