It is a great example of a "community cookbook,' which were often published for women by women. These cookbooks provide unexpected insights into aspects of American culture and public history at a given time in history. For example, in this cookbook, contributors use their husband's first name and last name with the title Mrs. with their full maiden name in parenthesis. Additionally, these cookbooks provide the reader a snapshot of historical details not documented elsewhere and have become unofficial records of the past. For some cookbook collectors and culinary scholars, their historical value far outweighs the recipes inside.
The comb-bound hard-plastic cover cookbook is in good used condition. There is some light discoloring on some of the page edges and cover--particularly on the top. No bent edges, tears and handwritten notes inside. This is a copy from the third printing in 1982.
