HOW TO COOK A WOLF, by M.F.K. FISHER. SIGNED and INSCRIBED by MFK FISHER on the front free endpaper: "To Dorothy B. Schroeder / my very good wishes / MFK Fisher". Published by Duell, Sloan and Pearce, 1942. Fourth Printing (in same year as the first printing). Hardcover Book in Dustjacket, gray cloth covered boards, white printing on spine, white design of wolf's head among vegetables on front cover, 5.5" x 8.5", 261 pages. Condition: VERY GOOD BOOK. The covers are worn through at the corner tips, the upper corner tips are lightly bumped, there is a bit of wear to the spine ends; overall the covers are solid and the white spine printing and front cover illustration are nice and bright. Internally, the pages are tight, bright and clean, and the inscription and signature by M.F.K Fisher are bright and clear. A solid, very nice copy of the book. In a POOR dustjacket that is trimmed at its upper and lower edges making it somewhat smaller than the book, the trimming at the top of the front flap has cutout the price (a close inspection of the top edge of the front flap reveals a speck of the original price above and between the "o" and "l" of "Wolf"); the dj is almost completely split at the rear spine fold (a small tug and the dj will be split in two), and substantially split at its front spine fold, has several horizontal tears to the spine, and has substantial edge, spine-end, and corner chipping and some clipping; nonetheless the dj is bright, clean, and the photo and printing on the rear panel is clear. In spite of its flaws and problems the dj is still better than many I have seen, as many are completely tattered. Some loving repair would make this dj sturdier and not too bad. A lovely copy of the BOOK in a dj that is present but in need of love. Early SIGNED & INSCRIBED printings of HOW TO COOK A WOLF are SCARCE, and quite wonderful. Bookseller Inventory #
