(California - Los Angeles) Cobb, Robert. The Brown Derby Cookbook. Intro by Marjorie Child Husted.

Illus. with drawings. Jacket. First Edition. Garden City: Doubleday, 1949.

The famed Hollywood Brown Derby in Los Angeles distinguished itself by its shape (a huge brown derby hat), but it's lasting fame has been the Cobb Salad, supposedly created by its owner in 1937 for Sid Grauman, who requested a late-night snack one fateful evening. Heavy chipping to jacket spine head, piece of jacket lacking from upper front jacket panel, else good.
