Pennsylvania State University, Agricultural & Home Economics Extension - Stain Removal Suggestions

Condition: Pages are Very Good - Covers are FLAWED with spots/writing & the poor-quality construction-like stock covers have DETACHED from those wire rings - - - there are too many pages for the size of the wire rings, & the cover quality has weakened after 63-years! It is my fault; the pages just snapped apart when I turned the book upside down to scan Image #3 - I should have known better. I’m very sorry. I checked EVERY page to enter all the names! (I include ALL names in ALL fundraiser-type cookbooks because I know how frustrating it is to hope and wonder if specific contributors are included in a book, only to find out they’re not, upon receipt.) … Page 26: bottom recipe for fruit salad was neatly removed & is included, but middle of page recipe is missing. Page 31: bottom unknown recipe is missing. Page 47: is missing or incorrectly numbered because it goes from 46 to 48. Page 50: a rounded chip is missing from side edge of page … Despite the covers, all the pages are attached, tight, & in excellent condition. They are clean with no tears, no highlighting, no dog-ears, no writing (only writing is on back cover - see Image #2). This rare gem is 63-years old, and I hope it will bring joy to one of the 125 named recipe contributors or to a loved one. It took a VERY long time for me to enter all & doublecheck for accuracy. Books are NOT from smoke-free or pet-free environment. Please see above THREE supersized images ... they are part of the description. Email with questions or requests.

Shipping: Buyer pays $4.00 (NOT for typical Media/Bookrate shipping NOR ANY handling fees!) ------------>>> Seller will add to your $4.00 and pay the extra dollars for upgrade to FIRST CLASS/PRIORITY that will include insurance, tracking number/info, faster delivery, and more gentle handling by the USPS than Media/Bookrate to better protect the binding on your keepsake.

Seize this scarce book for posterity, the descendants, future generations of those who contributed the recipes ... this legacy may be all there is! … Perfect as a gift for birthdays, Christmas, newborn grandchild or just to say “I love you and cherish the memories.”
