McDougall's Cookery Book (22nd edition, c.1950s) - vintage flour recipe booklet (SOLD)
A vintage advertising / promotional cookery booklet, produced by the makers of McDougall's Self-Raising Flour, containing such recipes as "Cut and Come Again Cake", "Sunshine Pudding" and "Sausage Meat Pie", plus cookery hints; the introduction (by Janet Johnston, the firm's "Cookery Expert") states that this is the "Twenty-second edition", and that over 9 million copies of previous editions had already been issued.
Whilst the booklet - being a genuine vintage item - shows assorted signs of age (see condition description below), it remains complete and fully legible, and would make an interesting addition to a collection of vintage recipe booklets or food advertising memorabilia.
