Very Good, and 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.) Covers and pages are clean, tight to all 15 plastic spirals, no defective spirals, no tears, no chips, no writing or highlighting, no dog-ears, no missing pages. This is a grand cookbook and, in my opinion, the only flaw is that they included (stuffed) too many pages for the size of the spiral binding … the front cover bottom edge tab (just 1/4”) below bottom spiral has pulled away from being enclosed by the spine … no big deal since it has no adverse effect overall. Books are NOT
from smoke-free or pet-free environment. Please see above SEVEN supersized images
(4 images of double-page index recipes - or increase your font size til you can read them) ... they are part of the description. Email with questions or requests. Shaded areas are from scanner and are not on cover or pages.
Shipping: Free Local Pickup
(see above Payment Shipping Policy tab for locale) … 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 plastic spirals 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.”

(Insurance is automatically included for up to $50 for Priority shipments.)

These books/items are not new unless specified new … they are retro or vintage, and some may come with wear and/or smells. I go to extremes, perhaps, detailing each item attributes and flaws, if any. And I especially include SMOKE and PET clauses in all descriptions, so please don't email me asking if it smells of smoke because you may be able to smell better than I do.
Please read the description and condition carefully before buying … all sales final, unless I grossly and unintentionally erred or omitted. Questions or comments or requests for more/larger images, please contact me prior to purchasing … I care.
Please do not use my description to sell your book. It takes me hours, sometimes, to describe and list names/recipes/contents so you'll know exactly what you're buying.
