Mastering the Art of French Cooking 1st Edition 1st Printing 61 Julia Child Book
This auction is for a first edition and first printing of the 1961 culinary classic "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" by Simone Beck, Louisette Bertholle and Julia Child. This meets the points of the first edition and first printing, as the copyright page indicates "FIRST EDITION" in bold lettering with no printing date, while the authors' note page is dated August 1961. This includes the original paper dust-jacket, which has the original price of $10.00 on the inside front. The dust-jacket shows some wear, especially near the top, where there is a small piece torn out in the front and in the back. The inside of the book is in very nice condition with no significant staining, bent pages or wear. There is no writing inside the book. This book appears to have seen little, if any, use in the kitchen or anywhere else. Please consult the photos for an accurate representation of the condition, and please feel free to ask any questions. This fantastic book represents an important milestone in the history of culinary publishing, and it is highly unusual to find one that retains its original dust-jacket. This would make the perfect gift for any fan of the legendary Julia Child, or the ideal addition to your rare cookbook collection. I would like to receive payment within 1 week unless other arrangements have been made before the auction's end. If you win more than one item, I will be glad to combine shipping whenever possible. Please email me if you have any questions about the payments we accept. Thanks for looking! [Attributes: First Edition]
