Sweet. It is in better shape than the one I got from my mom a couple of years ago--that has a silver binding (duct tape).

I do have to get a pack of those thingys that reinforce the page holes, you can tell the recipes that I used often because they are barely hanging on!

Mine that I got from my late mom is so beat up that it needs reinforcement tape, too. I think I'll go look for some clear box-wrapping tape tomorrow. The cover is almost completely loose from the rest of the book. It's been a very loved and well used book!

That's exactly the edition I've been on the look out for.

Fantastic gift for you BC!

I had bought the same cookbook at an estate sale I attended with my mom around the time I graduated from high school. Well, I lost some of the pages, and had to photocopy the pages from my mom's copy. Now I have two copies--one with s/one else's mom's notes and some with my mom's notes. I too had to get those reinforcers. What year was that one published? Maybe I have the one you want, PF.

I just looked and it was published in 1969.

I want to cook a bunch of stuff from it now. Some of the recipes were a little too exotic for me as a child, or I couldn't get the ingredients in my little one horse town, now I want to try them!

You're welcome. It looks like the first printing was 1968 this was the second in 1969.

PF--I'll keep my eyes open when I make my rounds of the thrift stores/yard sales. If you get a copy, let me know and I'll stop looking. If I find one, I'll let you know and send it off to you (complete with any recipe cards stuck between the pages).

Thanks, CWS! Would be the find of the century for me.
