Cookbook Value - southern cooking book coverI would be interested in knowing the value of "The Progressive Farmer's Southern Cookbook featuring Southern Food Ways". Copyright 1961. It not only has some good recipes, but it has a section for game cooking as well.

Pristine versions of the exact book consistently sell on eBay in the $25 range with seller paid shipping. After fees and shipping the seller averages $19.00. the value will decrease if it is not pristine. Neat find!!

This has been a popular vintage cookbook and seems to be holding its value at $25-$45. It did originally have a dust jacket.

eBay has several listed for sale so you might want to place a watch on some of these to see if any are selling during this period as most things are not selling right now.


Here is a link to eBay's sold listings which would normally be used as 'current value' but that would not hold true right now. Still you can see what people were willing to pay.
