Mills, Majorie. Cooking on a Ration. Food Is Still Fun. New York: Literary Classics, 1943.

Octavo. Hardcover. 1st Edition.

Very rare first edition of this World War II American cookbook offering recipes meant to cope with rationing, in the lovely original illustrated dust jacket. Focusing on canning, meatless mains, and recipes meant to make rationed ingredients stretch, this cookbook attempts to cater to American tastes, including a growing interest in foreign cuisine. Marjorie Mills was a well-known Boston journalist and radio host who edited the women's page for the Herald. Book about-fine, dust jacket near-fine with only light wear to extremities. A rare and lovely copy.
