A Thousand Ways To Please A Husband
With Bettina's Best Recipes
By Louise Bennett Weaver & Helen Cowles Le Cron
This is really a unique and charming book, with short stories to introduce the recipes, layed out in a meal plan format.
The book overall is in good condition for it's age of 90 years. There is a bump on the top of the front cover as seen in the picture, and the inside binding has started to loosen. (The paper hinge is worn through, but the actual cloth that holds the pages to the cover is still intact and seems pretty strong.) Adding to it's charm is a lovely handwritten recipe on the back page for an Upside Down Cake. I, personally, love to see handwritten recipes in cookbooks - specifically from this time period - ladies had such marvelous penmanship!
Other than the aforementioned, the pages are clean and tight. This book is coming from a smoke free home, and has been kept in an enclosed bookcase.
