I bought these from a cookbook collector who kept them clean and beautiful for many decades. Gourmet was definitely a top tier publication for those interested in creative dining. It's interesting to see how even gourmet food has changed while some classics live on. Among the writers is Lucius Beebe. I remember selling Beebe's railroad titles back when I first became a bookseller and was amazed to find that he's also Lucius Beebe the foodie. Both magazines have great color ads and articles covering pre-summer suppers(you have to SEE the picture with this one to believe it!), dandelion wine,a woman's fond recollection of her grandmother's African American cook, the literary history of the potato, Thai food, eggs, blue trout and more. I have quite a few of these from 1963 and a couple from 1964, so if you're looking for one hit the contact button and I;ll see if I have it. Eventually they'll all be on here.
