398 Sonia >> Sonia's Cook Book : A Cook Book De Luxe of Tested and Selected Recipes
Chicago: Felix Mendelsohn; 1920 First Edition Hardcover Fair in Good dust jacket 
336 pages; 8vo (8") 21 cm; Hardcover, tan cloth, 336 pages, classified index, several menus, about 800 recipes of all kinds. ; We have graded this item Fair with a Good jacket. Book was long ago given a home-made jacket of floral-patterned cloth, which was carefully trimmed to fit, with hand-sewed edges. We have left this magnificent jacket in place, thus the original exterior lettering cannot be seen. Interior is in great shape, only a few leaves have minor creases, book shows only a very small amount of the spots one normally finds in old cookbooks. Binding is intact, all pages attached and readable. ; Lain in: a number of interesting and very old recipe clippings and cooking leaflets.
