Here is a wonderful rare copy of the Betty Crocker Picture Cookbook vintage 1950 --hard cover cookbook that is a 1st Edition--3rd Printing. NOTE: THIS IS THE BOOK edition - NOT the binder!
The front cover shows fading at the spine and top inch or so. (The cookbook was in the sun and another book was up against it--hence, the fading at the top and spine side of the front cover.) Some rubbing at the tips and corners from re-shelving. Spine is faded too. But it doesn't look like the cookbook was used much at all.
INSIDE the pages are at least 98% free of any marks, stains or writing. Page 58 has some reside from Page 59 (yellow chapter page that has some splashes) and a few faded stains on a few pages but minor. If it wasn't for the fading, this would be a great copy for its age!
And just so you know....
Published in 1950, this ground-breaking title made cooking easy, it made cooking appealing, and best of all, it made cooking fun. Packed full of practical tips, useful hints, and lavish color photography, this was the book that shaped cooking for generations, the book that people remember.
Every recipe you -- or your mother -- ever wanted is here, from pigs in blankets, to Emergency Steak to Chicken Tomato Aspic. Enjoy the clever ideas throughout -- twelve months of birthday cake ideas, showing how to decorate a cake to match each month's gem stone, pointers to make setting up a kitchen easy, or hints to make housework more pleasant. Feel a part of history when making Home Front Macaroni, developed during WW II rationing to stretch meat. Get into the spirit of fun with a Betty Crocker "Cookie Shine" or cookie baking party. People who grew up with this book will want it for the memories; those who are new to the book will want it for its charm and its intelligent approach to cooking.
