78 pages; Folio (15") 38 cm; Very large format (11 x 15 inches) 28 x 38 cm, hardcover looseleaf, about 78 unnumbered pages filled with about 900 great old recipes clipped from newspapers and magazines. There are small thumbtabs on some of the leaves and recipes are grouped by type. Original owner apparently kept adding pages, thus some pages are about 1.5 inches shorter than others. ; Covers are of heavy green buckram with ornate embossed designs and gilt roundel on front. Title on cover is just Scrap Book. We estimate it was started about 1935. One clipping is dated 1940. ; Covers show moderate wear. This item is bound by heavy cord through two holes, as issued; cord is intact, but friction has worn some of the page holes rather large. Pages are a bit yellowed from age, as are some of the clippings, but everything is readable. Literally an enormous and unique collection of difficult-to-find recipes.
