Cape Code Cook Book, 1930, Suzanne Cary Gruver, First Edition, First Printing:  Cookbook published by Little, Brown, and Company, Boston.  The author, Suzanne Cary Gruver, collected these recipes from Cape Cod local residents, including “families of captains, managers of popular tea rooms, the ‘lady who made that cake,’ and the sophisticated cooks of that floating population–the motoring and cottage-holding summer residents.”  The recipes are for soups and chowders, fish, egg, breads, sandwiches, toast, meats, game, vegetables, salads, cheese, cheese, cakes and cookies, cake fillings and frostings, pies, puddings, preserves and relishes, and cranberries.

This cookbook is in excellent vintage condition.  There’s a tear on the fly leaf and a very light stain on the horse radish sauce page.  Other than those slight problems, the book is in excellent condition.  Hinges are perfect, binding is tight, pages are clear and clean.  It is decorated with many, many small line drawings.  Unfortunately, the publisher didn’t include the name of the illustrator.
