6 The Evolution of an Apple Pie
Chicago The N.K. Fairbank Company 1898 First edition Wraos Fine 
Scarce culinary pamphlet, listed on OCLC but with no library holding identified. 16mo. 11 by 8 cm. 12pp. Chromolithographic color illustrations, including on stapled wrapper cover. Advertising pamphlet for cottolene, a baking substitute for butter and lard and made from cottonseed oil and beef suet. Running through the pamphlet is a verse tale describes the steps in creating an apple pie, starting with the fruit on the tree and ending with the pie being served. About half of the pamphlet is devoted to short articles on the applications of cottolene or recipes, including ones for pie crust, apple pie, rhubarb pie, lemon pie, coconut pie and cream pie. These recipes are attributed to women, presumably consumers of the product. And filling out the promotional dimension of the pamphlet are a few testimonials.

9 [Russian Cookbook] ????? ? ??????? ? ????????? ????? [The Book of Healthy and Tasty Food]
Moscow ????????????? 1962 Cloth Good 
4to. 26.5 by 21 cm. 424 pp. Many color plates -- these are photo-based color drawings, for the most part. Also many b/w text illustrations, mostly photos. This cookbook, originally published in 1939 and revised afterward, was developed by scientists at the Soviet Institute of Nutrition in the Academy of Medical Sciences. With its lavish illustrations, the book was more than a practical handbook in the kitchen, but also a potent piece of Soviet propaganda. Many of the recipes were not feasible for the average family during the Soviet Era because of the chronic scarcity in grocery stores, but they nonetheless suggested how life was good under the Soviet system. Also, the writers touted the success of the Soviet food industry in the introductory chapter. Moderate wear to binding. Scattered soiling of the pages.
