Alice B. Toklas Cookbook British first edition with "brownie" recipe
1954. Alice B. Toklas Cookbook British first edition with "brownie" recipe. Shipped with USPS Priority Mail, insured. This is the original rare Alice B. Toklas cookbook published in 1954 in England. It contains the famous Hashish fudge recipe which in the 1960s morphed into the now famous Alice B. Toklas brownies! The US edition, also published in 1954, did not contain the recipe since the publisher was afraid US authorities would fine them for including it. (US editions after 1960 do include the recipe.) It is rare to find copies with the dust jacket (now protected with brodart plastic cover) which was designed by Toklas' friend, artist Francis Rose who also illustrated the book, Dust jacket is discolored and note the piece missing in the upper left hand corner on the front and upper right hand corner on the back. There is also some discoloration on the top edge of the book. The book overall is in very good condition. A great copy for both collector and Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas fans. [Attributes: First Edition]
Bookseller: thegert [San Francisco, California, United States]
