Cookery in Colour - ed. Marguerite Patten (1982) - classic illustrated recipe book
A nice early 1980s copy of this classic illustrated cookery / recipe book, originally published in 1960 and revised in 1972, complete with its original colour pictorial dustwrapper. The recipes within this "colourful and comprehensive guide to home cooking" include "Tuna Casserole", "Crusty Top Lamb Stew", "Eggs and Rice Supreme", "Date and Apple Tea Bread" and "Walnut Fudge".
Whilst the volume - and especially its dustwrapper, which has been price-clipped - show various signs of age (see condition description below), it remains otherwise complete, fully legible and in generally clean condition with few signs of past kitchen use, and as such would make a good reading or reference copy of this popular vintage cookbook.
