Sunset’s Barbecue Book, published in 1938 by Sunset Magazine, San Francisco, California. The first half of the book is “Barbe-Construction,” edited by George A. Sanderson. The second half, “Barbe-Cookery,” was edited by Virginia Rich. This is our first cookbook with building blue prints! The first printing was in December, 1938. This copy is from the 1942 fifth printing. Wood-look hard covers. Solid binding. 71 pages. Thumb indexed. All about siting and building the barbecue, as well as the history of the barbecue. Then, of course, great recipes. Dust jacket is a mess. Book is in nearly mint condition. Some shelf wear at the cover’s edges and on the spine cover. Definitely gift quality. A very unusual present!
