About this Item

Early post-War printing of a very popular Mexican-American cookery booklet ? one of the earliest to promote tacos for mainstream U.S. consumption, with the tacos here still described as tortillas folded over a stuffing and then fried, rather than the later style served in pre-fried, U-shaped shells. Richardson notes that the advent of the automobile and good roads have enabled many to visit Old Mexico and the Mexican border, where they have learned to enjoy Mexican cookery and so now want to duplicate dishes at home. This is the stated 16th printing, following the first of 1934, with a frontispiece showing Taos Pueblo. 16mo (16.9 cm, 6.7"). 31, [1] pp. Brown, Culinary Americana, 1972. Publisher's chili red paper wrappers, printed in black, green, and dark red; mildly worn overall, front wrapper with maiden on horseback vignette now slightly faded, traces of ownership inscription in upper margin. Pages lightly age-toned, frontispiece and inner front wrapper with area of staining not obscuring image, final leaf with pinkish offsetting from back wrapper. A notably early entry in the rise of Tex-Mex cuisine nationwide, this was => published in Missouri, not California, Texas, New Mexico, or Arizona. Bookseller Inventory # 36158
