The New Connecticut Cookbook 1st Edition Out Of Print Scarce
Rare Collectible! "The New Connecticut Cookbook", Stated First Edition, 1947, Compiled by The Woman's Club of Westport, and illustrated by Connecticut artists. Harper & Brothers publishers, NY and London, 338 pages. This is a very scarce book to find let alone a 1st edition. The book is in excellent (appears to be unread) condition. Blue cloth boards with just some very faint rubbing on bottom & top corners from being on the shelf. It has tons of recipes submitted by the Woman's Club and lots and lots of great illustrations. Front & back endpapers are a map of Connecticut. What a find! It has the most wonderful artist renderings and recipes from the Atlantic area. (note: I understand the reprints of this book had to be copied from microfilm). Some of the unusual out-of-print recipes include Crackling Bread, Swedish Fish Souffle, Basque Salad Dressing, Mary's Hungarian Cakes, Marshmallow Boiled Frosting, Prevert's PIckled Fish, Chicken Anton Lang and much, much more. This is a hard book to part with Note: This book is not to be confused with "The Connecticut Cookbook".
