Menus for Every Occasion.

New York: Frederick A. Stokes Company, 1927.

Octavo (21 x 14.5 cm.), vi, 217 pages. FIRST EDITION, review copy, with "Advance Copy" label pasted into a preliminary blank. Not a cookbook, but a collection of menus for meals of every sort: breakfasts, lunches, "salad meals", meals for one, "tray meals", guest meals, dinner meals, "color scheme meals", foods from foreign lands, and special occasions. Some light foxing to endpapers; in publisher's textured, olive green cloth, gilt-titled and with a photographic illustration pasted-down to front board. Some light wear to boards, spine faded. Pencil marks to many menus, indicating changes to the meals, usually reducing the number of items in a meal. Perhaps this book was regularly used by a professional cook in their day-to-day planning.

Price: $50.00
