(Peter Pauper Press) Beilenson, Edna, ed. Simple French Cookery.

Illus. with color woodcuts by Ruth McCrea. Dec. boards, jacket. First Edition. Mt. Vernon, NY: Peter Pauper Press, [1958].

A charming volume with gorgeous woodcut illustrations, and recipes for French favorites such as escallope de veau, sole bonne femme, omelette au naturel, turtle soup, stuffed mushrooms, etc. It's worth noting this was published three years before Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Fine in good jacket (offset from old sticker to front jacket panel).
