    Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Fair. Sidonie Coryn (illustrator). 1st Edition. Alfred A. Knopf. New York. 1961. 684 pages + index. First edition, second printing stated, November 1961; only a couple of weeks after the first printing on October 16, 1961. A most rare and uncommon signed copy by the book's artist and illustrator, Sidonie Coryn. Sidonie Coryn signed her name underneath "Illustrations by Sidonie Coryn" printed on the page opposite the title page. Additionally, laid-in is a handwritten, signed letter from Sidonie Coryn on her personal stationary to a friend: Dear ___, / I really didn't forget -/Just a bit of inefficiency on my/ part- The book sold so fast / I couldn't keep up with it- / My best regards for a / Merry Christmas and a / Joyous New Year / to you and your wife- / Sidonie Coryn. Book is tight, bright and clean. Binding and hinges are strong and sound. Minor toning along panel edges. Turquoise endpapers are clean yet front endpaper is age-toned from laid-in paper. Slight darkening to backstrip. Original first issue DJ with Julia Child's name third in the pecking order on front; just above Sidonie Coryn's name. $10.00 price intact on flap. DJ shows open chip on upper right corner, chipping along rear flap fold, and spine of DJ is absent. A solid VG copy of the classic in a poor DJ; signed by the artist of the book's classic illustrations, in addition to a handwritten letter by the artist, commenting on how quickly the book took off. The rest of course is history as this book launched Julia Child's career and celebrity. Worth noting is this book is lauded for its helpful illustrations (Coryn's) and precise attention to detail, and for making fine cuisine accessible. Sixty plus years later, the book is still in print and is considered a seminal culinary masterwork. A much rarer offering than a signed Julia Child copy. Signed by Author(s).

    Condition: Very Good. First Edition. First edition stated, first printing. A presentation copy with a very important association signed by Julia Child and inscribed to close friends Hadley Richardson and Paul Mowrer on the half-title page, "For Paul and Hadley who were in at the very beginning of this oeuvre - with all my love - Julia / Chocorua - September, 1962." With Paul's ownership signature to the front free endpaper. Hadley was the first wife of author Ernest Hemingway and her second husband, Paul Scott Mowrer, was an American newspaper correspondent and winner of the first Pulitzer Prize for Correspondence. Hadley had first become acquainted with Julia's husband, artist Paul Child, when she and her then-husband Hemingway were in Paris in the 1920s. After World War II and back in Paris, Hadley, now with her second husband Paul Mowrer became very close friends with Paul and Julia Child. This was during the formative years of Julia's culinary journey while she was learning and exploring French cooking, a journey which culminated in the publication of this iconic book. Hadley is mentioned in Julia Child's memoir My Life in France, and Julia was matron-of-honor at Hadley and Ernest's son Jack Hemingway's wedding. Bound in publisher's original white fleur-de-list patterned cloth, lacking a dust jacket. Very Good with fading to cloth heaviest at spine, light soiling and and a few scattered stains to cloth and pages throughout. Pages tanned, several leaves nicked at the bottom edge. Inscribed one year after publication in Chocoreur, New Hampshire where Hadley and Paul lived. A fantastic association copy of Child's magnum opus, inscribed by Child to close friends who were there, as she states, "at the very beginning of this oeuvre".
