Item Description: New York: Duell, Sloan and Pearce, 1942, 1942. Octavo. Original grey cloth boards, titles to spine in white, pictorial decoration to front board in white. With the dust jacket. Minor nicks to the tips, an excellent copy in a very good jacket with small chips to the corners, rubbing along the extremities, a small closed tear at the top of the rear panel, and a small perforation to spine panel. First edition, first printing. This practical and humorous book, published at the height of food shortages during the Second World War, offered housewives advice on how to achieve a nutritious diet with limited ingredients, as well as other useful advice, such as eating in a blackout, and recipes for home-made toothpaste and a cheap sherry cocktail. She encouraged her readers to find pleasure in cooking balanced meals, and in preparing their own bread, rather than buying vitamin-enriched bread as advised by the US government.

Item Description: Duell, Sloan and Pearce, [1942]., New York, 1942. First Edition. Fisher, M. F. K. HOW TO COOK A WOLF. New York: Duell, Sloan and Pearce, [1942]. First Edition. 8vo., 261pp., light gray cloth decoration with wolf's head surrounded by vegetables stamped white at the upper cover & with titles stamped white at the spine. A fine, fresh copy in a near fine bright dustwrapper with just a bit of wear at the head & heel of the spine. A handsome copy of the author's scarce third book. Fisher wrote "How to Cook a Wolf" in 1942, in the midst of World War II, just as food rationing programs were kicking into high gear with strict limits placed on basics like sugar, butter, meat, & coffee. War-time slogans encouraged American households to "make do, or do without." [Fisher wrote "How to Cook a Wolf." as a reminder of the pleasure - the rapture - you could still find in food, even under a tight budget or war-time rationing. "I early on thought, as long as we have to eat to live, we may as well have fun doing it. There should be some enjoyment of food, as we do with making love, or keeping warm. It's one of the three basic needs of our lives," she said. "How to Cook a Wolf" reads like an issue of Lady's Home Journal, if the editorial staff were taken over by a philosopher with an empty stomach, a slightly tipsy poet and your mischievous, foxy godmother who once kept many lovers. Best lines include: "Probably one of the most private things in the world is an egg, until it is broken." On cooking during a war-time black-out: "Use as many fresh things as you can, always, and then trust to luck and your blackout cupboard and what you have decided, inside yourself, about the dignity of man." And this advice, from the chapter called "How to Lure the Wolf": "One way to look your prettiest in the kitchen, and make the wolf think that even if his hot breath whuffs through the keyhole and ruffles your very curls you are nigh adamant, is to put up a little mirror." "How to Cook a Wolf" is part cookbook, part essay collection. Fisher shares practical recipes that can be made cheaply: how to make your own toothpaste; a recipe for fried calves' brains, since that cut of meat was cheaper and more readily available under rationing programs; instructions for a good, low-cost sherry cocktail.] - Weekend America. An extremely good copy, much better than usually encountered. Bookseller Inventory # 31668

Plain unprinted white wrappers in dustwrapper. First Edition. 8vo., 261pp. A fine copy in a very good or better dustwrapper that is glued by the publisher to the spine & showing some rubbing there. A rare state of the author's third book; perhaps the only example to come to market in the last 25 years.
