Looking for the perfect gift for any BRIDE ...this cookbook is hilarious!!
COLLECTOR'S 1966 scarce vintage true first edition, first printing out-of-print book - A Bride's Very First Cookbook? by James Croom.
Intro: "Normally, every legitimate book you see has a very fancy introduction - usually written by a celebrity - which fixes everything so you can't wait to get on with the reading. Our book needs all the introduction it can get, and we know a few dozen celebrities, but not one is willing to write an introduction to this cookbook."
Publisher: Potpourri Press, Copyright, 1966, first edition, probable first printing with the original $1.50 price on title page. Filled with charming illustrations in color and black & white; some on colored pages. Love the witty text and fun recipes - or UN-recipes!! Several helpful hints including:
HOW to turn the Stove On - A must for warming leftovers, How to be GLAMOROUS in a Kitchen, What To Do in Case of FIRE, How To MAKE Your First Pot of Coffee, What to do when you have a COLD and more. You will love the luncheons and dinner menus ...How about High Percussion Drumsticks with Mushrooms? Diploma certifying the Bride who has developed interesting possibilities in the kitchen at end of book. Every bride needs one. Wait until you see the rest!!
