Baxter, Richard  
Baxter's Practicval Up-To-Date Receipt Book for Bakers: An Invaluable Collection of Receipts for the Baker who Wishes to Keep up with the TImes
 Picture
Publisher: Laird & Lee, Publishers, 1922 Chicago, IL.
Book. Book condition: Fair to Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 16mo - over 5¾ - 6¾" tall Revised and Enlarged Edition with 1922 Supplement. "It is the aim of the author, in placing this book before the public, to fill one of the bakers' long-felt needs; not a great compilation of all sorts of receipts, with only here and there one that a baker can possibly make use of, but a compact volume composed of the very cream of bakers' receipts, every one of which is a staple article in the trade, with full directions for mixing and working the same. The author is well known as a most successful baker, always being able to build up a fine trade in the city where he locates. Some of the receipts are original with him, and have always been strictly guarded by him as secrets of the trade. These, together with the best of those collected during his many years of experience as a baker, and his travels through the Eastern and Western States, are given in this little volume. The receipts are all well tested, and the man who has a fair knowledge of baking to begin with, and who has this invaluable book to aid him, will find himself thoroughly equipped to handle the best of trade anywhere int he United States." This is a recipe book for the modern (ca. 1922) professional baker. 126 pages with index. Book is in FAIR to GOOD condition; book has apparently been used in the kitchen, but is still in usable condition. No dust jacket.

Appr.: | AUD 54.05 CAD 55.31 EUR 36.36 GBP 30.12 JPY 5,000.00 MXN 625.00 ZAR 500.00

Some are old, some new, some original. It is the earnest hope that the little book may be of some help and value to those who may use it as an accessory to their standard cook book."

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.

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.
