Just a few more days until Swamp Rabbit Books opens shop at Dilboy VFW Hall in Davis Square! Last Top Shelf Flea everyone seemed interested in the cookbooks, so this time 'round we're bringing a shelf-full. That's just a sampling in the image above.
Look closely, and you'll see everything from a small-press Arizona Cookbook ($3) to a signed first edition of The Art of Cooking Omelettes ($559) -- the latter recommended by Julia Child herself on her 1960s TV show "The French Chef" (see her making an omelette here!). Other collectibles include a more modestly-priced first edition of the amazing Thousand-Recipe Chinese Cookbook ($18) and a first of Liberace Cooks! ($134), signed by Liberace! The chef on a budget will find numerous cheap cookbooks as well, many of which are out-of-print or unusual.
We'll post more previews to this blog before Sunday, so stay tuned!
