Old, Antoinette Pope School Cook Book, Hardbound 1964 - Signed
This vintage recipe book is titled “The New Antoinette Pope School Cookbook”. It was written by Antoinette and Francois Pope who thought thousands to cook throughout the 1940’s and 50’s and their cook book was considered a staple in many 1950’s kitchens. It was also a welcomed wedding gift for the young bride of the time. It’s a well rounded book covering everything from the basics of cooking, appetizers, main courses of all types, breads and desserts to some International favorites. There are also sections on wines, pickling & preserving and freezing. It has a whopping 930 pages including the index and a menu section. It has a 1961 copyright date but this is a 1964 Third Printing. It was published by The Macmillan Co. of New York. It is signed by both of the Popes on the inside cover. It has the original dust jacket which is covered with a heavy plastic cover.
It measures about 6” by 8 ¾” by 2”. The inside pages are basically crisp and clean with minimal wear. I am not able to get the plastic cover off without possibly tearing it but it appears that the hardbound cover and the paper dust jacket have been protect well. The ink of the signatures bled and are blurry.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
