About this Item

8vo. Buff wrappers, string-tied. 19pp. Pictorial margins printed in brown. Very good. Outer wrappers (only) a tad edgeworn, age toned and rubbed. A tight, lovely copy of this early Tea Room menu, undated but from design and typesetting suggest teens or 1920s vintage. Paper clipped (unusual design clip of brass) at upper right corner of front wrapper is small printed advertisement for Marshall Field's "Queen Victoria Chocolates" and at upper left corner of inside front wrapper another printed sheet listing the daily specials. Text block consists of black lettering with red category headers: "Afternoon Tea," "Beverages," "Ready to Serve," "Sandwiches," "Sea Foods," "Soups," "Salads, "Cold Dishes," "Bread," "Hot Bread," "Sweets," "Ices and Creams," "Desserts" and lastly the early 20th century version of "heart healthy" -- "Hygienic Dishes" (Stewed Prunes, Bran Muffins, Saccharine Tablets, etc.). A fine example of this quaint culinary relic. Bookseller Inventory # 40690
