I have a couple of these books and would like to find more.   They are old cookbooks with a black, hardbacks with tabs on the side of the pages.  They were from Topeka, KS, and started in the 30's.  Sometimes they are listed with E-bay and you can get some at Amazon.com but I thought if anyone knew of someone's bookshelf that might contain one, I would appreciate a PM.  Thanks!!

50 cents?  What a steal!  I love these books and the style is so unique.  Thanks for the reply.
