OLD COOKERY BOOKS AND ANCIENT CUISINE

First edition, first printing. Publisher's original green cloth with decorative gilt owl vignette to the upper board and titles in gilt to the upper board and spine. Page edges untrimmed. A very good copy, the binding square, firm and bright with just a little rubbing to the extremities. The contents with a small previous owner's name label to the front pastedown and scattered foxing to the prelims are otherwise in good order and clean throughout. A lovely copy.

An exploration of early cookery books and eating habits, including a section reproducing recipes. Part of 'The Book-Lover's Library', edited by Henry B. Wheatley.
