Beautiful shabby old hardback advertising cookbook distributed by Cottolene Shortening. Cookbook is hard cover and from 1910. It contains a "useful collection of up-to-date recipes by the five leading culinary experts in the United States." Published by NK Fairbank Company.

Culinary experts are:

Mary J Lincoln
Lida Ames Willis
Sarah Tyson Rorer
Helen Armstrong
Marion Harland

Book includes a lot of information on the shortening as well as endorsements by experts and eminent physicians. Eighty pages long it contains many recipes. Also has a few pages of ads towards the back that are quite entertaining.

The book is in fair vintage condition. Everything is intact, but book overall has an aged and shabby appearance. Back cover has a dark stain. Lots of dribbles and wear on front cover. Pages are discolored. One is very faded, but rest seem good. Two page spread has a splatter of some kind (see last photo). Book also seems to bear a little fragrance.

I think the condition of this book is it's charm! It would be an awesome display item! The cover is so awesome.

Measures 4.75" by 7.5"
