Lunching and Dining at Home

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1942.

Octavo (18.4 x 12 cm.), vi, 284, xvii, [2] pages. Index. FIRST EDITION. Review copy, with publisher Alfred Knopf's compliments slip laid-in. "Here are clear and exact recipes for fine dishes that any housewife can prepare in a small kitchen with limited equipment" (from the jacket). Jeanne Owen was the secretary of the Wine and Food Society of New York and wrote on food for Vogue, House Beautiful, House and Garden, etc. Some age toning to text block. In publisher's tan cloth, titled and decorated in blue and dark red. Near fine. Signed by the author on the free front endpaper. Small ink name, "Street", to front flap of dust jacket. We think it likely that this copy was intended for Julian Street, whose book Wines, was also published by Alfred Knopf in 1933, and who retained a working relationship with the publisher through 1961.

Price: $150.00
