Edited by Ruth Berolzheimer who died in 1965 after a long and illustrious career as a “cooking and child welfare expert” (according to her obituary). She was for years the director of the Culinary Arts Institute, and the editor/author of a number of books. The American Woman's Cookbook was originally published in 1938 by the directors of the College of Home Economics of Cornell University.
The book is 816 pages and includes tabs for the different chapters. An all inclusive book (think of 'The Joy Of Cooking or Betty Crocker') with much information from the most basic of cooking necessities & tips to the fanciest of fancy dishes.
Very good condition.
This particular edition includes an appendix on Wartime Cookery.
