Scarce First Printing
Meredith Publishing, 1953. FIRST EDITION, first printing stated. Measures approximately 8" x 10" ring bound. Remarkably good condition for legendary cookbook of this vintage. Classic red & white checkerboard patterned cloth boards, titles in white on black (silhouettes of cooking pot, pan and gravy bowl on the front cover). Has 20 numbered chapter index tabs including index. Transparent protector page still present in front. Vintage illustrations throughout. Overall truly spectacular condition, very few stains, couiple of pages 61/62 and 171/172 loose from binder but laid in, perhaps a stain or marking or two - scribble inside back cover – but this is a fantastic condition and very scarce collectible of the all-time classic cookbook. 416 pages.
