(Ice Cream) Heller, B.  Heller’s Guide for Ice-Cream Makers

Illus. throughout with wonderful period drawings illustrating various types of ice cream desserts. Brick red cloth lettered in gilt. First Revised & Enlarged Edition. Chicago: B. Heller & Co., 1927.
A professional guide for ice cream producers, manufacturers, and sellers. Each ice cream or ice cream dessert lays out the amount of butter fat, and illustrations from photographs and drawings show everything from happy couples at the soda fountain to bacteria found in milk. This was clearly made for the trade - anyone who owned an ice cream fountain needed this tome. Frozen cherry punch, pineapple ice, banana sherbet, fruited plombiere, picnic ice cream, and many more popular flavors of the day. Minor rubbing to spine ends, else near fine, with inscription from the publisher to the owner of Varella's in San Francisco mounted to front pastedown.
