THE NANCY DREW COOKBOOK: Clues to Good Cooking.

New York: Grosset & Dunlap, (1973). First edition. INSCRIBED BY "CAROLYN KEENE" aka Harriet Adams, "Greetings to/ Wayne Stringer/ a gourmet cook/ From/ Harriet Adams/ a book cook/ (Carolyn Keene)." Recipes named after characters, places and themes in the Nancy Drew series under the guise of a weekly cooking session in which 12 recipes are tested and voted on by Nancy and the gang. Harriet Stratemeyer Adams (1892 – 1982) ran the Stratemeyer Syndicate for over 50 years, writing many of the plot outlines for the Nancy Drew series and others, as well as overseeing the work of the many ghostwriters for that and other series. Beginning in the 1950s, she revised a number of the books in this and the Hardy Boys series, removing stereotypes and streamlining the plots. 8vo pictorial paperboards without dust jacket, as issued. The Mystery of the Missing Ingredients! – a few pages have very helpful handwritten additions such as, "1 cup sugar," which would appear to have been left out of the ingredient list for "Mrs. Nickerson's Holiday Cookies." Very good or better with some light soiling and spine ends and corners a little bumped and rubbed. GREETINGS TO A GOURMET COOK FROM A BOOK COOK.
