Condition: Covers & Pages are Good. 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/recipes are included in a book, only to find out they’re not, upon receipt.) Covers and pages are attached to easy-turning plastic spiral binding with no missing pages, clean (except for couple light smudges on front cover) with no tears or chips, no highlighting, no writing ... minimal edge/corner wear & not-bad age toning to outer edge areas of some pages. Books are NOT from smoke-free or pet-free environment. Please see above NINE supersized images ... they are part of the Email with questions or requests.

Shipping: (Free Local York PA Pickup) ... Buyer pays $4.00 (NOT for typical Media/Bookrate shipping NOR ANY handling fees!) ------------>>> Seller will add to your $4.00 and pay 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.”
