The Joy of Cooking; A Compilation of Reliable Recipes with a Casual Culinary Chat

New York: The Bobby’s-Merrill Company, 1936. First Edition, Third Printing. Hardcover. 628 pages. 24 x 16.5 cm. A third edition copy of the widely beloved Joy of Cooking. After the suicide of her husband in 1930, Irma Rombauer cobbled together a cookbook, illustrated by her daughter Marion. By 1936 the Bobbs-Merrill Company agreed to publish the expanded version, keeping the narrative style later known as the "action method", in which ingredients are called for within the recipe. Chock full of recipes fit for everyday meals or inviting over guests, this timeless book is comprehensive and popular for good reason. Some minor foxing, cover slightly soiled and worn in spots. Yellow cloth boards. Very Good. Item #3249
