Descripción:

In the ORIGINAL brown, cloth-covered, blind-stamped (decorated) boards with gilt titling to the spine and front cover. No dustjacket. The boards are very worn to the corners, where the board is showing through, and chipped and worn with some splits to the head/tail of the spine - the bottom edge has about 1 inch in length of cloth missing and is chipped and rubbed which affects with loss the Publisher's gilt name there at the foot of the spine. The spine is slightly uneven looking as though it might have been re-glued at some point - but no tears to the inner edges of the spine that I can see, except at the very top and bottom edge. The cloth is generally a bit friable and marked/stained, it even has 3 or 4 small candle wax spots - all adding to it's Antiquarian charm in MY opinion (others might disagree! ) - but the covers are sound and, apart from the 'faults noted above, these covers are overall near complete. Internally plain lemon endpapers with a later 1883 note in pencil by a former owner on the front pastedown. Contents = A guarded full page engraved plate of the Author (very stained/spotted - foxed) as the frontispiece. The printed Title Page; followed by a printed dedication to 'His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge'. A full page b/w engraving - referred to in the 'Illustration' list as an 'Emblematic Woodcut', by Barff Tucker and engraved by J. Walmsley. (xxviii) + 720 pp + 6 pp full page b/w engravings; 18 pp Table of Contents & 'My Kitchen at Home' ; Single page Advert for 'Soyer's Diamond Sauce' ; A large Fold- out Menu on blue paper, for 'A Dinner for 150 given to His Highness Ibrahim Pacha by Members of the Reform Club 1846' ("all of the menu selected from the recipes in this book." ) ; 6 pp Biography and guarded engraved Portrait of Madame Soyer. (the Portrait is lightly foxed - brown spotted - and has a stain to the blank outer edge) ; 24 pp Press Reviews/Advertisements. There are also 27 other b/w woodcuts/full page plates within the body of the text. All illustrations as called for in the List are present. The front inner hinge has been reglued neatly but the rear hinge, although there are some small splits to the inner paper hinge, is holding tight. Page fore-edges are uniformly browning. The huge text block is TIGHT and Very Clean with the proviso that occasionally there is a small spot, here and there, very occasionally in the book. Overall the book is Good/Good Plus. Text clean, Joints firm. Internally the portraits are very foxed, as noted, but the rest of the book inside is generally very good. Alexis Soyer (1809-1858) French born and educated, left France for London during the Revolution in 1830. Following a number of appointments in aristocratic houses, he was given the position of chef at the Reform Club. He was appointed by the government to oversee soup kitchens in Dublin. He did this with great economy and efficiency and published his account in 'Soyer's Charitable Cookery, or The Poor Man's Regenerator'. He went at his own expense to the Crimea and completely reorganised the diets and kitchens of the military hospitals and the army. His English wife, Emma, whom he married in 1837, was a very successful genre painter; she died in premature labour in 1842, her portrait and eulogy are appended to this book." .

(xxxx), 720 pp. An unusually fine copy, beautifully preserved and very unusual thus. AN UNUSUALLY FINE COPY OF THIS CLASSIC WORK. Soyer brought cooking with gas to a popular station and provided classical recipes that still are useful today. Soyer's book remains one of the most collectable of all culinary books printed in England. 'Soyer was a French chef who became the most celebrated cook in Victorian England and was arguably the first celebrity chef. He also tried to alleviate suffering of the Irish poor in the Great Irish Famine (1845–1849), and improve the food provided to British soldiers in the Crimean War. He invented a soup kitchen and was asked by the Government to go to Ireland to implement his idea. This was opened in Dublin and his "famine soup" was served to thousands of the poor for free. While in Ireland he wrote Soyer's Charitable Cookery. He gave the proceeds of the book to various charities. He also opened an art gallery in London, and donated the entrance fees to charity to feed the poor. He instituted many innovations, including cooking with gas, refrigerators cooled by cold water, and ovens with adjustable temperatures. His kitchens were so famous that they were opened for conducted tours. In 1849 Soyer began to market his "magic stove" which allowed people to cook food wherever they were. It was designed to be a tabletop stove. Nº de ref. de la librería 25550
