Book Description McGraw-Hill Book Company, Inc., 1950. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good+. No Jacket. 1st Edition. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. Hardcover has red cloth boards with "Dutch" design in white. No DJ, but still has square corners. This copy was used by a cook. There are exceptionally tidy notes in margins and underlining with additional recipes written & glued in. You will find occasional batter drops or juices from preparing a dish while book was open. On ffep, there is the face of a christmas card glued in (my guess this card came with this book when gifted.) This said, you do not notice these flaws without careful examination. I feel it adds to the charm of this copy. The cook book starts off with photos of different kitchens followed by how to get perfect results from recipes in this book, how to measure, meaning of terms, a dictionary of special and foreign terms, storing foods, substitutions, how to prepare and much more. Profusely illustrated with whimsical 50's drawings, luridly colorful photos of food. These are the recipes your mom and grandmother used and you remember! Betty Crocker is a tradename of General Mills, Inc. No specific employees/divisions named in the production of this copy. Copyright 1950. Stated 2nd printing of First Edition. No ISBN, LCCN nor MSR.
