great vintage cookbook and guidebook with marvelous fifties era illustrations:

The Ford Treasury of Favorite Recipes from Famous Eating Places
Complied by Nancy Kennedy (editor of the Ford and Lincoln Times)
Ford Motor Company / Simon and Schuster, NY, 1950, first edition.
Hard board cover, yellow with full cover illustration. Endpapers are an illustrated map of the United States, divided into regions just like the book.
252 pages, fully illustrated, with recipes and travel information for eating your way through postwar America.
7" x 5.5"

An incredibly fun book, which offers all sorts of trivia and information for traveling to the best eateries all over the country (in 1950), complete with recipes so you can try the dishes for yourself. Chatty, easy to follow, accessible but exotic too. Just jump into your woody wagon and head for the best food everywhere in the USA.

Excellent condition. Very clean, looks hardly used. No dust jacket.
