1 Hearts a la Mode  Dix, Dorothy; Ackley, E. E. (illustrator)
Very Good.  
Hardcover. Hardcover 1915 Hearst's International Library, New York. No dustjacket. No additional printings indicated. Very clean; no marks; pages bright; binding tight. Light wear to corners and edges. Royal-blue cloth-covered boards with white lettering on spine and white design on front. 157pp, 15 B/W cartoon drawings. Language: English. A wonderful period piece with sage advice that still resonates today. Humorous commentary on love, marriage, and relationships with family and friends, given in the form of cookbook recipes. For example: 'To prepare Cold Shoulder take a barrel of snobbishness, a bushel of idiocy, a peck of egotism, and a pound of superciliousness, and mix well together. When these are thoroughly blended flavor with enough ingratitude for past favors and broken ties of friendship to make it bitter. Add selfishness and cruelty to taste, and steep yourself in this mixture.' Dorothy Dix was the pseudonym of Elizabeth Meriwether Gilmer, a forerunner of the modern advice columnist. Her popular newspaper columns ran for 30 years. Hard-to-find title. No ISBN.  
Price: 75.00 USD
