by Hiller, Elizabeth O. & Claire Wallis and Nellie Ryder Gates
Joliet, Illinois; New York; Chicago; Toronto: P.F. Volland Company, 1910. Tall, narrow octavo, 28 x 14 cm, unpaginated (varying page lengths). Full color art deco illustrated covers and monochromatic illustrative borders (or headers and footers) to each page. Ten books (seven unique titles) from the calendar recipe book series published by P.F. Volland Company. The duplicates are maintained because of slightly varying imprints and in two cases distinct artwork. The Calendar of Entertainments is authored by Claire Wallis and Nellie Ryder Gates while the remainder are written and compiled by Elizabeth O. Hiller. Hiller was a prominent "lecturer on household science" and principal of the Chicago Domestic Science Training School. The calendars offer a specific recipe (or two) for each calendar date on the topic of sandwiches and beverages, desserts, cakes, salads, and dinners. In 1908 German-born Paul Frederick Volland founded his company in Chicago to publish artful greeting cards. By 1917 he had expanded his offerings to include calendars and children's books, notably among them the Raggedy Ann series. Hiller's culinary calendars continued to be his steady bestsellers. In cord-bound (top edge) stiff, beautifully illustrated paper covers. Two books in original boxes. Conditions vary slightly, some fraying to cords and edgewear with minimal foxing primarily very good. (Inventory #: 4679)
