Recently bought a 47 year old 11th edition Fannie Farmer for $27 (ppd) from megoibooks. I was relieved that it arrived in very good condition.
The 1915 PDF addition, however, has the advantage of being keyword searchable.

Holy TMI!

In any case, for a beginner, I recommend the new edition of How to Cook Everything: The Basics by Mark Bittman. Lots of pics and recipes for most standard home meals.

There's also a great app for it.

I found one at a used book sale a while back and it had a bunch of newspaper clippings from the 60's in it. I recognized a few names in it. They ended up being relatives of my mother's friend. I gave her the clippings and she passed them on to the grand kids, who are now adults themselves. It was cool.
