James Beard's Fish Cookery (SIGNED 1ST)

Boston: Little, Brown & Co., 1954. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. 5 1/2 X 8 1/8 Inches. 460 PP. Very Good / Very Good. Item #7230

"The Dean of American Cuisine." Julia Child

Stated "First Printing" on the copyright page. Original price of $4.95 intact on front flap. Signed and inscribed by Beard directly on the FFEP. Looks like the pen that was used by Beard was low on ink (causing a bit of variation in the inscription darkness). Light toning to endpapers as seems to be typical with this book. DJ a bit worn at spine ends, edges and folds. A very attractive copy of one of Beard's scarcest books. Beard was a noted American chef, cookbook author and the man who pioneered cooking television shows in the 1940's.

Price: $350.00
