Boston: Little, Brown & Company, 1930.

Octavo, 231 pages. Advertisements. Third edition, revised and with additional recipes. Halftone illustrations throughout, plus illustrations in the advertisements. The author's preface to the first edition notes that "Illustrations by means of half-tones were produced from photographs of actual dishes were first brought out, we think, by The Century Company; in this line however, both in the number and in the variety of the dishes prepared, the author may justly claim to have done more than any other has yet essayed. The illustrations on these pages were prepared extensively for this work, and the dishes and the photographs of the same were executed under our own hand and eye. That results pleasing to the eye and acceptable to the taste await those who try the confections described in this book is the sincere wish of the author. Recipes and menus appear in distinct categories, as laid out in the title: Salads, Sandwiches, and Chafing-dish Dainties. Edges of text block a bit dusty, otherwise very good in green- and white- printed brown cloth. In a lightly soiled and edge-worn dust jacket. [Bitting, page 228; Cagle 360].
