Oakland: E. F. Kiessling & Son, 1939. Approximately 6 x 9". Illustrated paper wraps, slight tear and deterioriation on spine, no marks on the interior, slightly musty smell, very good condition.
This cookbook was a gift meant for new brides. It covers all of the basics of a cookbook with extra sections entitled Beauty & Charm, Budget & Finance, Diets, Homes & Furnishings, Hygiene & First Aid, and Travel & Vacations. Some advertisements in the rear section include Takahara hygienic douche powder and Clorox (which they recommend you use to clean floors, wash your feet in it keep athlete's foot at bay, and wash the dog and cat in it). Yikes!
