(*NEW ARRIVAL*) (Outdoors) Nika Hazelton. The Picnic Book


Illus. with drawings by Maggie MacGowan. 10.25x7.25", jacket. First Edition. NY: Atheneum, 1969.

The best picnic book out there, with suggestions for all kinds of outdoor feasts around the world. Chapter titles include: a picnic in the ruins, a thrifty but filling wine or beer picnic, a children's picnic off the Maine coast, a boat-launching picnic in Saint James, a Fire Island beach costume picnic, a picnic under the willows in Torcello, a tailgate picnic in New Mexico, a picnic a deux in a graveyard (!), and many more!

A bit of sunning to jacket spine, otherwise very good.
