This is The Joy of Cooking The All-Purpose Cookbook by Irma S. Rombauer and Marion Rombauer Becker, Bobbs-Merrill Company, Inc., Indianapolis New York, c. 1985.
"Joy is the all-purpose cookbook. There are other basic cookbooks on the market, and there are fine specialty cookbooks, but no other cookbook includes such a complete range of recipes in every category: everyday, classic, foreign and de luxe. Joy is the one indispensable cookbook, a boon to the beginner, a treasure for the experienced cook, the foundation of many a happy kitchen and many a happy home." (Inside jacket)
Wow! That about says it all. Regarding the condition of the book. There is a stain on the inside of the jacket and a small tear on the back jacket edge. The book itself has a clean, smooth interior with only a couple of spots on the right edge of the book. The pages are clean...all 913 of them!
