Purity Cook Book was first published in 1923 and revised in 1932, 1937, and 1945. 

First founded in 1905, Purity Flour (named after the "pure white" flour they produced) rose to become Canada's largest flour milling company. In 1932, they published the Purity Cook Book which featured a variety of recipes incorporating Purity products as well as hundreds of other complementary recipes for all meals of the day. In 1937, the cookbook was revised to include more modern cooking techniques. Again in 1945, the cookbook was revised, including simple, economical fare appropriate for war-time cooking.

This copy is the 1945 war-time edition.  Beautifully presented, this cookbook contains 875 recipes for a variety of meals including sandwiches, cereals, candies, desserts, beverages, fish, meat, poultry, soup, salads, pickles, vegetables, canapes, rolls, and pies. Tips, suggestions, detailed illustrations and colour photographs are included.
