First edition, first printing. Signed by the author. Original green cloth with red illustration to the upper board and titles in gilt to the spine, in dustwrapper. A very good or better copy, the binding square with light rubbing to the extremities. The contents are entirely complete, clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. The text block edge is somewhat tanned. Complete with the very attractive dustwrapper which is lightly rubbed and nicked to the spine tips and with a thin blue ink mark to the rear panel. Not price-clipped.
Signed by Elizabeth David in blue ink on the half title. Any of Elizabeth David's first editions are rare in signed state, this being a particularly nice example.
