Stated First Edition; also First Printing. Fine; as new, in fact, but for a demure gift inscription at the half-title. See scans and description. New York: Simon Spotlight Entertainment, 2005. Square 12mo, illustrated perfect-bound wraps, 246 pp. Illustrated by Tanja Thorjussen. Fine, but for the above-mentioned sweet, short gift inscription (see scan). Otherwise, immaculate - a condition in which this particular First Edition is seldom found. See all scans. Typically a very-often-referred-to title, simply because of its premise: "Right now, somewhere in America, a storm has knocked out the electricity. With Apocalypse Chow!, Jon Robertson delivers a very practical guide to eating with elegance even when the refrigerator, stove, and microwave are rendered powerless." Interesting and useful. Though one wonders how Jon came by this information... Very collectible first/first, in unusual condition. Ships in a new, sturdy, protective box - not a bag. LT24
