UPDATE -- THE BOOK HAS BEEN REQUESTED AND IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE.  THANKS FOR THE INTEREST AND I'M SO GLAD THAT IT FOUND A GOOD HOME!!!

 

===

I have a copy of the 1929 cookbook, "The Modern Method of Preparing Delightful Foods" by Ida Bailey Allen. This is a slim (110 page) hardback book that was given away free by the Corn Products Refining Co, and even has a cuople of really nifty ads in the back! 

There are recipes for all kinds of dishes (not just corn related.

Here's a photo:

Sadly, the binding is cracked and the cover is almost coming off, but all the pages are clean and intact it's still an interesting piece of cookbook history. Smoke and pet free home.

I've had this for many many years but it's time to pass it on.

Anyone want it?

If you think it's worth a credit, that would be nice, but if not I'll send it for free.
