Beverly Hills, CA: Beverly Hills Woman's Club, 1931. Third Edition. Hardcover. White illustrated cloth covered boards. Very good. 239 pages. 20.5 x 16 cm. Recipe attributed to members of the community with a humorous preface by Will Rogers. Established in 1916 by the collaborative efforts of Beverly Hills society women, the Beverly Hills Women's Club was formed to strengthen and explore intellectual ideas, literature, the arts, and philanthropic efforts. Signed on front free end paper "Best Wishes - Clark Gable." We believe this signature is not Clark Gable's although his wife, Carol Lombard was a member of the Club and furnished two recipes (soup) to this book. Other notable celebrities who provided recipes: Barbara Stanwyck, Norma Shearer, Buster Keaton, Fanny Brice, Mary Pickford, and many more. Numerous local advertisements included. Interior clean, cover stained.
