Detailed Information for Seller's item number: 7275
Early California Hospitality: The Cookery Customs of Spanish California, With Authentic Recipes and Menus of the Period.
Author: Packman, Ana Begue de.
Publisher: Glendale CA: Arthur H. Clark Co., 1938.

First edition, First printing Hardback octavo in orange cloth. 182 pages. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR on the initial blank with a simple impersonal inscription. 1019 copies but reprinted in the 1950's. An important book with a very nice association. "Folk-tales, legends, songs, customs and the intimacies of a Hispano-California household handed down through the generations." Rocq, California Local History 2nd, #4294, quoting the L.A. Times review. Brown, Culinary Americana; #187. Clark & Brunet, The Arthur H. Clark Company, An Americana Century, 1902-2002; #202: "This book combines recipes and history, and has been collectible in both fields for many years . .[and it] is described as 'a cornerstone for a collection on California gastronomy'"citing Strehl, One Hundred Books on California Food and Wine. The bookplate of Juanita Blackburn on the front endpaper. She was the wife of Tom Blackburn, Hollywood western scriptwriter and novelist most often noted for writing the lyrics to the Davy Crockett theme in the 1950's. The book probably spent some time in a sunny kitchen with the spine faded and spotted moderately. However the covers are otherwise just minimally worn and soiled, the binding is sound, and the text is just slightly toned except for the place where a bookmark from the Pickwick Bookshop of Hollywood has nested for many years -- there it is moderately browned. Hardcover Hardcover Very good

Price: US$200.00. Quantity available: 1.
