First edition/first printing in Very Good condition, little rubbing to edges. Gray and white patterned pictorial boards with green cloth spine. From the collection of Betty Anderson, legendary art director of publisher Knopf in the late 20th century as evidenced by her (small and unobtrusive) inventory number. A charming document of technological advances in the household of the early 20th century.
From the introduction: "To many people electric refrigeration is still such a novelty that they scarcely realize the range of its possibilities. It is almost like having an Aladdin's lamp and not knowing the right way to rub it. The refrigerator itself requires no attention, not even oiling, and is surprisingly easy to keep clean."
