Does anyone know the title of the old Yellow Chinese Cookbook?

Hi everyone... I used to have a great Chinese Cookbook called something like "1,000 Chinese Recipes" or something... it was printed around the seventies or eighties I think, and was about two and a half inches thick.

The cover is yellow. The recipes label each ingredient with either letters or numbers. Then directions for each recipe refer to the letters/numbers; i.e. "mix a. with c., blend in d."

The entire book is in black and white, all text and no pictures.

I love this cookbook, lost it during a move, and am trying to find it again (maybe online).

Am hoping that someone has this great cookbook and might be able to provide the title.

Thanks in advance for your help!
