(Southern - Georgia) Colquitt, Harriet Ross. The Savannah Cook Book. 


Illus. by Florence Olmstead. Intro. by Ogden Nash. Jacket. Third Edition. NY: Farrar & Rinehart, 1933.

"Harriet Ross Colquitt was the author of  The Savannah Cookbook, a more colorful and quirky collection of recipes, chock full of such coastal standards as mulatto rice (a composed rice dish with tomatoes) and Chatham Artillery Punch (a kitchen-sink conglomeration of, among other liquors, brandy, gin, rye, and rum). Published in 1933, the book boasts a foreword by poet Ogden Nash wherein he proclaims, " 'Everybody has the right to think whose food is the most gorgeous / And I nominate Georgia's.'"- New Georgia Encyclopedia. Jacket with faint stains and heavy chipping to extremities and spine ends, 1" piece lacking from jacket spine head, else very good in good jacket. Scarce.
