by Meade, Mary, [pseudonym of Ruth Ellen Church and others]
Chicago: Chicago Tribune, 1970. 21.5 x 13.5cm uniform size, varying page count. Twenty-six recipe booklets with eighteen unique titles. Scattered holdings of recipe booklets produced by the cooking editor of the Chicago Tribune newspaper, featuring titles such as Simple Homemade Candies, Refrigerator Ice Creams, 52 Appetizers of the Week, Five Years of $100 Recipes, Cooking After Office Hours, Parties for Growing Ups, Pantry Shelf Dinners, and more. More than 120 of these books were produced, so this is a fraction of Meade's output. Mary Meade was the pen name used by five food editors of the Chicago Tribune from 1930 to 1974. Ruth Ellen Church was the longest tenured food editor, from 1936 to 1974. Church published recipes and books under her own name, in addition to that of Mary Meade. Booklets in wrappers, with five distinct cover designs represented. Condition varies, with some edgewear and bumping, though primarily very good with several in fine condition. (Inventory #: 4682)
