Betty Crocker's "Your Share", Copyright 1943, General Mills, Inc.

Softcover, 48 pages.

This book contains 52 menus, 226 recipes, and 369 hints on food buying, preparation, meal planning, and serving and was intended for the women behind the men, behind the guns, to aid in meal preparation during wartime, dealing with food rationing while safeguarding the nutrition of the family. Besides information on stretching meat, extending butter, and making cheese go further, there are recipes, menus, and even a section on hospitality in wartime.

There is no writing in or on this book. There are no loose, torn, stained, or dog eared pages. The cover shows some wear and the pages have yellowed from age slightly. There is only one staple in the spine, but it is in the middle and it doesn't look like any others are missing. I guess that is how it was put together.

Such a neat book with great historical value.
