This is The Culinary Arts Institute Cookbook, Advance Publishers, Orlando, Florida, 1986, 5th printing.
"The Culinary Arts Institute began creating cookbooks fifty years ago. A short time later, it published two books that have made cookbook history. The Culinary Arts Institute Encyclopedic Cookbook first appeared in 1936, followed two years later by The American Woman's Cookbook. Both are among the top ten best-selling cookbooks of all times." (Back jacket)
Needless to say, this 799 page and over 5 pound cookbook with over 4,400 recipes and 500+ color photographs continues in its tradition of cookbook excellence.
There is a tear on the top corner of the dust jacket and some rubbing on the bottom edges of the cover. The pages have yellowed over time but are clean and smooth. This is a must-have for your vintage cookbook library.
