Woman's World Cook Book.

Chicago, Ill. Manning Publishing Company, [1931].

Quarto ( x cm.), 468 pages. Illustrated with a frontispiece portrait of the author and over eighty color and halftones. FIRST EDITION. A sizable cookbook from the publisher of Woman's World magazine. Introduction by the publisher himself, Walter W. Manning, dated February 1, 1931. There is another version of this book, also dated 1931, but with a Reilly & Lee imprint; we believe the Reilly & Lee issue to be a later, cheaper edition. Lily Haxworth Wallace was best know as the author of The Rumford Cook Book. A bit of fixing to a few pages, including the title page, otherwise internally clean and sound. Original cream color cloth, embossed and decorated in black. Wear to cloth at head and foot of spine, and some light soiling to cloth. Near very good. [OCLC locates seventeen copies; Cagle & Stafford 790; Bitting, page 483].

Price: $50.00
