The Joy Of Cooking

By Rombauer, Irma S




Written by Irma Starkloff Rombauer, The Joy of Cooking was first tested and illustrated by her daughter, Marion Rombauer Becker. Subsequently it was revised and enlarged through Marion?s efforts and those of her architect husband John Becker. Their sons?Ethan, with his Cordon Bleu and camping experiences, and Mark, with his interest in natural foods?have reinforced Joy in many ways.

the joy of cooking (first printing)

irma s. rombauer

st. louis, mo.: clayton, 1931. Book. Illus. by marion rombauer. Good. Hardcover. 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall. This is the very rare 1931 first printing of cook's bible "The Joy of Cooking". Very very few books have survived of this small initial 1931 printing. This was Irma Rombauer's first self publishing containing the recipes that made her a legend in the kitchen. The book is in good clean condition being 85 years old and self published during the depression. Blue boards with gilt title on front,395 pages with "the cover of this book can be cleaned with a moist cloth" on the back pastedown. The first few pages are edge worn from use but the rest are fairly clean and unmarked. The book has been rebacked(spine strengthened). She had the insight back then to create a cook book that could be cleaned! There are no underlined sections or writing in the margins or old stains. There is some age spotting and cover wear. This is a very special cookbook for any chef's kitchen and one of a few left. Great price!.

The Joy of Cooking

Rombauer, Irma S.

Indianapolis/New York: Bobbs Merrill, 1946. Thick octavo, 884 pages. The 1946 printing, sometimes called the Post-war edition, an update of the 1943 War-time edition. The first trade printing of the The Joy of Cooking was issued by Bobbs Merrill in 1936, following the original, privately published by the author and printed by Clayton of St. Louis in 1931. As described by Anne Mendelson in her masterful biography of Rombauer, Stand Facing the Stove (New York, 1996, pp. 170-172), with each successive printing of Joy, incremental changes were made and the book progressed toward becoming a national bestseller and a standard household reference. Simultaneously, Rombauer's relationship with Bobbs Merrill deteriorated. But despite that The Joy of Cooking rose to the position it holds today, that of the most popular and best-selling cookbook in American history, with nearly eighteen million copies sold to-date. It is the only cookbook to be included in the New York Public Library's list of 150 Influential Books of the Century. A very good, clean copy in the gingham-patterned, light blue cloth. In a near very good dust jacket, with a bit of light edge staining to the rear panel, and some chipping to the head and foot of the spine. Still a much cleaner copy than is usually encountered.
