Reliable Recipes, A Concise Compend Of Tested Recipes
The front cover reads, "Reliable Recipes "Can't be beat." Yellow, green, and blue lines frame a little boy wearing a big blue and white polka dot bow-tie and a Buster Brown outfit as he beats a drum. A large can of Calumet is behind him to the right. The title page has an orange-red background. The boy has a basket in the upper right-hand corner. A dog is chasing a butterfly in the lower left-hand corner. The back shows the boy dressed as a chef mixing batter in a tan bowl with a can of Calumet to the left. The back end-page has an orange-red background. The boy is playing leap frog over a can of Calumet as his dog watches. "Calumet Sales Are Two and One-half Times as Much as that of Any Other Brand." 81 pages.
