Feeding the Lions. An Algonquin Cook Book.

New York: The Greystone Press, 1942.

Large quarto, 255 pages. First edition, second printing of the third and final work (and only cookbook) in Case's trilogy of works about his beloved Algonquin Hotel, following Tales of Wayside Inn and Do Not Disturb. A cookbook peppered with comments from many of the hotels famous guests. Favorite steak preparations, best breakfasts, etc. Publisher's red cloth binding a bit creased at the spine, but still bright and otherwise very good. In the very scarce printed dust jacket, depicting a lip-smacking lion who has apparently just devoured a doorman. The jacket is edgeworn, and has a light stain to the spine, but is still bright and with very little loss. Near very good.
