Anne Clarissa Eden, Countess of Avon (née Spencer-Churchill, 1920-2021) married Anthony Eden in 1952. Perhaps she bought it even later than that to help with dinner parties at 10 Downing Street or Chequers while he was Prime Minister between 1955 and 1957? Sadly, there are no food stains or annotations recording the great success with the US Ambassador of one of the recipes. A nice copy of the first of Ambrose Heath's 'Good Food' series.
