Scarce Antique Jell-O and the Kewpie dolls ~ 1915 Jell-O recipe book

This hard-to-find, out-of-print antique cookbook ~  4.25" x 6 1/4", 18-page booklet.

Jell-O became “America’s Most Famous Dessert,” before it was even familiar! Jell-O's early promotional advertising included recipes, recommendations from doctors, and adorable kewpies.

Two of America's beloved advertising images, Jell-O and Kewpie dolls, teamed up for this 1915 Jell-O recipe book. Developed in 1897 in LeRoy, just west of Rochester, New York, Jell-O gelatin quickly became, as advertised, "America's Most Famous Dessert." Magazine advertisements and recipe books made up the bulk of Jell-O's advertising campaigns. Offering techniques and tips on making the dessert, the booklets reminded consumers that Jell-O cost only 10 cents per package - an especially important fact as World War I drove food prices up. This booklet, besides containing a special insert about Jell-O's ice-cream powder, depicts Kewpie dolls making and serving Jell-O. Illustrator Rose O'Neill started a national craze when she unveiled her Kewpie illustrations in 1912.

Condition is very good for the age. Slightly bumped corners with the bottom right corner hard bumped. Interior is excellent with bright colors and illustrations. This booklet still has the special insert regarding ice cream (this insert has a bumped and bent edge). Covers are very nice but the back cover shows a creased edge.

A nice piece for the advertising display or cookbook lover.

Many very good recipes. This small thick 6.5" by 4.5" booklet is loaded with exciting things to see. But it does show use and wear. It is staple bound. Most of the interior is very good, see photos, but pages 56 and 57 show much old Ink. As does the back cover and inside of back cover .... almost as if someone used it as an ink blotter. Some mild ink shows on front cover. Closed slit tear at back cover as well.

Still a very nice antique graphic historical cookbook / advertising piece for the collector.
