Rombauer, Irma S
The Joy of Cooking
Indianapolis/New York: Bobbs Merrill, 1946.
Thick octavo, 884 pages. The 1946 printing, sometimes called the Post-war edition, was an update of the 1943 War-time edition. The only cookbook to be included in the New York Public Library's list, "150 Influential Books of the Century." A very good, clean copy in the gingham-patterned, light blue cloth. In a near very good dust jacket, with a bit of light edge staining to the rear panel, and some chipping to the head and foot of the spine. Still a much cleaner copy than is usually encountered.
