I've been waiting for a new price guide to come out, and pre-ordered this one ahead of time.Finally here & fantastic! Great pictures, history, collecting, preserving, & grading tips. Most cookbook collectors have only a few price guides to go by. We've finally got a new one to add to the Frank Daniel's one. Excellent.A Must-have for all cookbook enthusiasts, sellers & buyers alike!
I've been picking up vintage cookbooks & advertising cookbooklets for many years, but until recently didn't explore learning about them.This book has been invaluable in learning more about collecting vintage cookbooks. There's explanation of condition, value, and the factors that make a cookbook desirable to collectors, and how to decide which ones to buy.The authors have included hundreds of full-color photos, along with information about each book (date, publisher, number of pages, value range, etc.). Books are organized by author, or by the company whose goods they advertised.There's also biographical information about some of the cookbooks' authors.Scatttered throughout the book are "collecting tips" such as looking for certain design aspects, social themes, wartime collections, etc.It's all very engagingly written, well laid out, and expansive, making this book a joy to read, and to return to. If you're a book collector or seller, or have a love of vintage cookbooks, I think you'll find this book a terrific resource.
Have stumbled upon a load of these cookbooklets and bought this book to learn more of what I have. This is an excellent book with loads of info for the novice or pro collector. Highly recommended!
I lost 40 years of cookbooks in a wildfire, and based on others reviews, hoped that this would help with the insurance inventory. Sadly, although most of my cookbooks were by well-known authors and such, they weren't included. Such as Craig Claiborne, or the wonderful New York Times Large Type Cookbook. Even tracking down my grandmother's Fanny Farmer and Joy of Cooking wasn't easy. I resorted to other methods. The index is clunky to use, and often not specific, if you're looking for a particular book.
Being an avid collector of cookbooks, I found this book to be a good reference source.
This is a great book with lots of tips on collecting. Colorful pages with photos of cookbooks. I just wish it had more appraisals in it for a greater variety of cook books. I think it was worth buying. Helped me determine the possible value of my collection.
This book is more than just a price guide; it has so many interesting facts about the books, authors, collecting....I just wish it had more books covered or that this would come out in a new edition.
It's nice to know the history behind various cookbooks and helps greatly with research into what makes a certain book great according to the critics. A nice addition to any collection.
