New York: Coward-McCann, 1952. Alanson. first edition. Small octavo, 84 pages, with illustrations in black and red by Alancon (Hewes). What an era! This charming but relatively modest book of recipes has the hallmarks of the 1950s -- salmon mousse, fondue, frozen vegetables, the first hint that provençal will become an overworked adjective, instructions on how to defrost a refrigerator and relight the pilot light (on the stove). In terms of this sort of collecting, the 1950s have scarcely been tapped. Party instructions tell you not to forget Dubonnet and sherry, liquor and cigarettes, and reminds one to clean up and put on lipstick before guests arrive. Ah yes. This copy has lived in a trunk for the past 65 years and is as fresh as the day it was published. It is bound in a shiny paper on boards, printed in yellow, red and black. . Item #7077
