Most of the pages in this little book are blank. The only pages with writing are those with the recipes.

The cover of the book is leather with advertising for Henry Cowell Lime and Cement Co. in San Francisco. This book may possibly date to the 20's or 30's, though could be older.

The cover is worn, rubbed and scuffed. Inside pages are in very good condition for the age. The writing is relatively easy to read.
