Previous owner's name in ink on title page. Light edge rubbing on orange and red cloth, with covers lightly bowed outward. Approx. 50 rear pages have light water staining and rippling along top margins. Rest of text clean. Binding firm. Full color photos on most of the pages. Life's editors and photographers present an introductory coffee-table guide to cooking for relatively unsophisticated Americans. Some of the text reflects the quaint values of the 1950s -- for example, a section that says men must be in charge of grilling steaks. Besides 600 recipes, the book contains profiles and photos of major restaurants and their chefs, and samples of their most famous recipes.
