I found this baby, complete with it’s sister, a cookbook, in a fairly perfect boxed edition in Minneapolis in the early 1990s.  I’d priced it in Manhattan and it was just too expensive for me at the time, but the bookstore where I found it had the whole set on sale for a mere $25.  I couldn’t wait to pay and get out of the store before anyone realized that it was worth far more than a double-sawbuck and a fin!
