About this Item

1954, no statement of edition, but a presumed first American trade edition quarter green cloth hard cover. Gift note inked on second front pastedown. Dust jacket is moderately rubbed, with tiny chips, some soiling, original 4.00 price intact on front flap. New mylar cover. 288pp., index, more than 350 carefully prepared recipes, endpapers and sketches whimsically illustrated by Sir Francis Rose, Dora Maar portrait of Toklas on rear panel. While the famous fudge recipe created a sensation upon publication in London, it has been long expurgated from subsequent editions. We are happy to include a copy of the nixed recipe and associated lore (laid in) with this book. Size: 8vo - 8" - 9" Tall. Bookseller Inventory # 043904
