Very Good in Very Good jacket. Very Good Copyright 1970, 32nd printing 2009. A copy that has been read, but remains in excellent condition. Pages are intact and are not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. ***** SYNOPSIS Rarely are we able to say with certainty that a book is at the top of its subject in regard and quality. This book, the continuation of `Mastering the Art of French Cooking' by Julia Child and Simone Beck is certainly in that most unique position among cookbooks written in English and published in the United States. This volume is truly a simple extension of the material in the original work, which was recently published in a 40th anniversary edition by its publisher, Alfred E. Knopf and its principle author, Julia Child. As told in Ms. Child's autobiography, the original manuscript brought to Judith Jones at Knopf ran to over a thousand printed pages. About two fifths of that material was put to the side and most of it appears in this second volume. All this means is that you are unlikely to really have a full coverage of the subject of French Cooking as intended by the authors unless you have both volumes. ***** *****MY SHIPPING PLEDGE ***** Orders placed by 4pm CST will be shipped same day. Shipments are packaged by ex-shipping dept., head inside fluted and/or box board. Any other requirements from you, please contact us immediately.
This is my second copy. Can be read for entertainment as well as a guide for preparing food. I won't be cooking my way through it, writing a book about it or making a movie, but I will continue to enjoy Julia's cookbook

New! Gave to my daughter for Christmas. My daughters watch the movie and now they want to cook their way through the book.

Where is it?
I ordered the book a couple of months ago and was away most of that time. I expected it to be here when I returned home and it was not. So at this point, I wish I had not ordered it.
