[Reinbeck, Ia?]: Lewis Press Print, 1927. 88pp. plus nine leaves of plates. Original brown linen wrappers, printed on front cover and stapled. Covers heavily worn, especially at extremities. Moderate wear and soiling to contents, manuscript recipes and notations throughout. Good. Item #1946

A heavily used community cook book for the little town of Reinbeck, Iowa, a small town near Cedar Falls. In the 1920s Reinbeck had a population of about 1400 people, which appears to have been a thriving community based on the numerous plates filled with local advertisements. Most recipes herein contain attributions and run heavily toward desserts. A previous user has annotated the volume with manuscript notations and clippings, and it has obviously seen active use in the kitchen. Rare -- one copy in OCLC, at Harvard.
