Palm Beach, Florida: The Junior League of the Palm Beaches, Inc, 1976. Early printing of this work capturing the fabulous people and places of 1970s Palm Beach. Octavo, original cloth, patterned endpapers, illustrated with 65 photographs. Written and edited by Mrs. John T. Murray. Recipe coordination by Mrs. Gary Wiren. Research and interviewing by Mrs. David Reese and Mrs. Dan H. Campbell. Food consulting by Maurice Moore-Betty. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. All the glamour and style that the name "Palm Beach" evokes in the imagination are captured in this beautiful book, which is at once a history of the fabulous resort and a guide to giving parties the modern Palm Beach way. Opening with the story of Palm Beach's fabled past, most of the book is devoted to the more than 150 delectable recipes and menus for a variety of parties from seated dinners and cocktail parties to informal patio suppers and boat picnics.
