A 1st Edition/1st Printing of the very first Neiman-Marcus cookbook! Square tight binding with clean bright interior."A Taste of Texas" - New York, 1949 - edited by Jane Trahey, began a nearly 70-year tradition at the upscale retailer of publishing cookbooks of the highest culinary standards and a penchant for regional experimentation. "We believe firmly that Texas is a world in itself, but in this cookbook, it became the crossroads of the world. The food Texans eat and like is like reading the state's history." Trahey wrote in her preface to the book. This is a Near Fine copy with just a touch of edge wear to the binding in a lightly age-toned, price-clipped dust wrapper. Presents handsomely in archival mylar.
