CHILD, Julia. From Julia Child's Kitchen. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1975. Octavo, original pictorial paper boards, original dust jacket.

First trade edition of Child's fourth cookbook, boldly inscribed on the half title: "To Sandra, Julia Child."

Child was the girl from Pasadena who revolutionized American cooking with her irrepressible humor, genial expertise, and her signature phrase, "Bon Appétit!" Winner of three Emmys, the Peabody Award, the National Book Award, and the French Légion d'Honneur, she was the first woman ever inducted into the Culinary Institute of America's Hall of Fame and her kitchen has been installed in the Smithsonian. A "self-confessed ham, she became a darling of audiences… almost from the moment she made her debut in 1963 at the age of 50" (New York Times). Paul Child, Julia's husband, provided the photographs and drawings that illustrate the book. Preceded by a signed limited edition of 1500 copies. With "First Edition" on copyright page; dust jacket with "10/75" on lower corner of rear flap.

Book with only minor bubbling to boards and slightest toning to extremities, price-clipped dust jacket with mild rubbing and toning to extremities and single tape repair to verso. A near-fine inscribed copy.
