1st / 1st Very Scarce! Betty Crocker's Picture Cook Book 1950
This is an authentic first edition, first printing (both stated) of Betty Crocker's first ever hardback cookbook. "Betty Crocker's Picture Cook Book, General Mills, 1950, Stated First Edition, First Printing, 449 pages. This is a great classic cookbook in a hard-to-find 1st condition. It would list for more if dust jacket were present. This is a hard bound book in red and white boards. The book is in very good condition. There is some rubbing on the outside covers, particularly on the top & bottom of the spine. It is tightly bound, however and there are no stains, odors or writing in the book. The pages are a little foxed and there is a small place where a previous label was evidently peeled away (see photo). A bonus, there was an additional recipe left inside by the previous owner for "mayonnaise cake". There are pages & pages of recipes, ideas and how-to's. This book is much sought after. Here's your chance to have your own copy at a very reasonable cost. NOTE: There is a facsimile of this book recently published by Betty Crocker but is not a true first edition, nor are the ones marked first edition but 2nd, 3rd, etc. printings. Note: This is the cook book that started it all, the well-loved edition that first bought Betty Crocker cookbooks into American homes and hearts.
