3 My Daily Dinner Cookery Book The work of a practical housewife. Unique in the history of cookery books.
Melbourne Southdown Press N.d.(c. 1940s) 4th edition Pictorial Stapled Wraps Fair 
Wrap covers detached from contents and repaired along spine. Some minor stains to wraps, contents very clean. Edited by K.Balfour, this aims "to provide the young housekeeper with a fundamental knowledge of cookery." Very interesting to study the menus. A summer Monday offering is cold lamb, jellied beetroot, mashed or new potatoes, followed by blancmange with jam. Things look up on a winter Sunday with roast fowl, boiled pork or bacon, cauliflower, bread sauce and mashed potatoes (rather a white dinner), followed by orange snow. Ms Balfour's best advice? "READ (your) cookery books, and not just use them for one or two special recipes that take your fancy" Lovely edition of this work.

10 "Viola" The Leader Spare Corner Book Part VII. For Australian Women. A uique collection of home and household hints and kitchen recipes.
Melbourne "The Leader" & "The Age" 1935 Pictorial wrappers Fair 
Insect damage to spine and edges of front & rear covers. The book is no longer stapled and therefore does not hold together. Rust stains from staples carry through the centre of the book. Contents are good and unmarked. The Spare Corner, begun in 1927 was soon a popular feature for women readers of "The Leader" newspaper. The first booklet of selections from this page of correspondence, advice, recipes, patterns and so on was issued in 1929 and later issued in three parts bound as one, to be followed by a second containing parts four, five and six. A fascinating collection, since these were readers' favourite recipes, home remedies and household hints. Enjoyable advertisements, too.
