Vintage Recipe Book - Mrs. Neil’s Cooking Secrets - 1924 - Proctor & Gamble
This is old paperback cookbook is titled Mrs. Neil’s Cooking Secrets and it was written by Marion Harris Neil a former editor of The Ladies Home Journal. This is an especially fun little book because it is from The Proctor & Gamble Co., the makers of Crisco. The start of the book actually has the story of Crisco pointing out the benefits of cooking with Crisco. The booklet is also an excellent source of general kitchen knowledge including a cooking timetable, a weights and measures table and tips for carving. It is full of recipes for meats, vegetables, soups, salads, puddings, pastries, breads and more. The recipes seem to have simply written instructions but there are no photos or illustrations. There are 129 pages including the Table of Contents which is at the back. It has a 1924 copyright by The Proctor & Gamble Co. of Cincinnati.
It measures about 5” by 7 ¼” by ¼” and is in good condition with minor use wear. The pages are generally crisp and clean with minimal wear and a tight spine. The soft paper cover has light edge and corner wear and minor soiling. There is also a light spot on the front that looks as though someone erased something.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
