Customer Question
I have a very...

I have a very old cookbook, but some of the pages are missing but it has everything in it a menu for a year and how to cook game and how to can, freezing and a whole lot of other stuff in it, it was my mothers and it came from back east, i have no cover for it, it has been moved around alot

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

Its a really thick book and the cover used to be green if that helps and i think but not sure it was put out in the late forties or early fifties
