Pictured is a pamphlet titled "Cupid's Book." It was given to my great aunt and uncle when they wed in San Francisco in 1932. Below is a more detailed description from http://sfhcbasc.blogspot.com/2010/02/from-our-test-kitchen-cupids-book-of.html?m=1
"This book of recipes, household hints and lots of advertisements was city-specific and given to newly married couples. The San Francisco History Center has two copies of the San Francisco edition of Cupid's Book of Good Counsel, one circa 1924 and another from 1927. It is interesting to note that, while the 1924 version of Cupid's Book includes advertisements for somewhat manly things, such as paints and varnishes, it is fairly obvious that Cupid's Book was made for the brides rather than the grooms."
