An envious, and uncommon, collection of these cookery pamphlets issued under the aegis of the Safeway Stores Homemakers' Bureau, itself under the guidance of Julia Lee Wright, a fairly well-known culinary personage of the day. Each pamphlet gives a homey discourse/recipes for the pamphlet's subject, e.g., "Care and Feeding of Husbands and Fathers" ... [it] "isn't difficult at all, really, for most men are surprising simple in their tastes." True then, true today, just ask my wife. lol
IAE, other subjects / recipes include, "Why Recipes Go Wrong", "Cooking for Leisure", "Blue Ribbon Favorites" [e.g., Chop Suey Marmalade], "Baked in a Pie (Pastry)", "Fashioning Sponge Cakes", "Halloween Favors, Made from Marshmallows" and my favorite, "Coffee, Don Juan of Beverages"
