[Detroit]: Ted Talbert; [a T-Square Book], 1971.
Small stapled booklet (15 x 10 cm.),  pages. Illustrated with “Cartoons by Zeke" (from the inside back cover). FIRST EDITION; a second edition was issued in 2000. A humorous little work on the classic pork intestine dish known as chitlins, chittlins, or as here, chitterlings. The book contains short humorous texts and facing illustrations, some geometric designs, and others the cartoons of Zeke. There are just two recipes, Mrs. Edna Talbert's Famous Recipe for Boiled Chitterlings, and Mrs. Edna Talbert’s Famous Recipe for Fried Chitterlings. The great character Ted Talbert was a Detroit-based African-American journalist, documentary filmmaker, historian, and host of numerous stunts. He had five Emmy’s for his film work documenting the African-American experience. He was friends with Detroit Mayor Coleman Young and with the sister of Carolyn Franklin, sister of Aretha. A tireless promoter of aspects of African-American history he thought overlooked, he shown his spotlight on the Tuskeegee Airmen, the great boxer Joe Louis, and Black Bottom, the Detroit black neighborhood bulldozed for “progress”. He died, aged seventy, of congestive heart failure. Some light wear to red, black, and yellow printed wrappers, otherwise very good. Very scarce. [OCLC locates just one copy of this first edition, and one of the second edition of 2000; not in The Jemima Code (though acquired by Tipton Martin after publication of her great work)].
