This book is the newest link in perhaps the greatest of cooking traditions. One can start that tradition 85 years ago, when Rumford was the first to issue booklets and folders on better cooking. So useful did these prove that in 1908 Rumford brought out the first edition of its famous Complete Cook Book. With the unequalled testing of the years, friends of this book and sharers in its delights have increased, until today there are more than 5,000,000 copies of it in use. This edition lives wholly up to the great Rumford tradition. Again, under the skilled direction of Mrs. Lily Haxworth Wallace, it includes the flavor of the old and true, seasoned with the methods of modern practice. The book, however, is well able to speak for itself.
