Yes, when I got my Braille cookbook, the binder was already starting to fray
and tear. I got many wonderful tips and recipes from it. Many good books out
there, and from the past!

I was given a copy of the Braille Cookbook.  It is a one volume hard cover 
book that had labels in the back but of course there were no labels there 
when I got the book.  It is copyright 1948 and is fun to look through.  I 
also got two volumes of a book called Evelyn Lee's New Cookbook or something

like that.
I only got two out of the three volumes.
