First edition, first printing. Publisher's original dark blue cloth with titles in gilt to the upper board and spine. A very good copy, the binding square and firm with a little rubbing to the cloth and a couple of minor bubbles to the lower board. The contents with tanning to endpapers and the odd spot of foxing are otherwise clean throughout and free from any previous owners' inscriptions or stamps.
An extremely useful discursive annotated bibliography of English cookery books from 1500 to 1850.
