My mother used to have a cookbook that was printed by the Rumsford aking Powder Company. It was red hardback. It was smaller than a regular hardback more like the size of a paperback. This was the best cookbook. It had gotten lost through the years.  Does anyone know where I could find one of these? I have contacted the company and they just say that they don't print them anymore.  It was originally printed in the late '40's or early '50's.  I grew up with this cookbook. Would love to have a copy for my Mother.Thanks.Karen

I may have your book!  The title does not have an "S" in it but sights Rumford Baking Powder.

I am a cook book collector and will take any cookbook you have in trade. This is one of the early editions from 1918 and it has some wear but is in excellent condition for it's age.  My book has a green hard cover and is by Lily Haxworth Wallace -- Gold Medalist - Graduate of the National Training School of Cookery, London, Eng. The book measures about 4" x 6".  Do you think this may be it?



Anyone else out there that has old cookbooks (or new) I am interested.  If you are cleaning out old cupboards or Aunt Martha's old house, please think of me.  I will pay for the mailing of the books.  If you want more info, please let me know.  thanks!!
