A Treasury of Great Recipes by Mary & Vincent Price. Sells for a consistent $80
In 1965, Mary and Vincent Price published A Treasury of Great Recipes–now regarded as the one of the world’s most beloved cookbooks. This beautifully-designed tome features recipes collected by Vincent and Mary at restaurants around the world, including original menus from classic restaurants and wonderful photographs by the great William Claxton. Written in Vincent’s lively and accessible prose, the book captures the beginnings of the foodie movement in the United States, and also affords a glimpse into the celebrity lifestyle of the Prices.
A Treasury of Great Recipes has come to be regarded as “one of the most important culinary events of the 20th century” (Saveur Magazine) and was recently named the eighth most popular out-of-print book of any kind by Booklist. It has inspired countless chefs, garnered fans from around the world, and recently spawned many supper clubs who have been “cooking and eating Vincent” around the world.
In 2015, Calla Editions of Dover Press will be publishing the 50th anniversary edition of this classic, with a comprehensive new introduction by Vincent and Mary’s daughter, Victoria Price. This website will chronicle Victoria’s journey back in time as she revisits many of the restaurants in the original book, as well as its current fans, who have kept the legacy of this classic alive.
