36 pp. Illus. with drawings in black & white by Winora Hawken. 7.25x5", pictorial yellow wrappers. Santa Monica: Apron Pocket Press, [1973].

This popular "Apron Pocket" guide to speaking Spanish with your housekeeper was published numerous times through the late 1960's & early 1970's, and is reminiscent of guides published for the Raj in India much earlier in the century. Common household phrases and illustrations of each room in the house with glossary of terms. Darkening to about half of wrappers, otherwise very good.
