Editorial: Ward Lock, n.d. [c.1950]
Año de publicación: 1950
8vo., with a coloured frontispiece, 3 coloured plates and 16 plates in monochrome; original red cloth, backstrip lettered in black, very neatly recased, covers mildly age-marked else a very good, clean copy. Complete with front and rear trade advertisement endpapers. 'The only cookery book to have survived two World Wars and emerged at the end with its indispensability unaffected' (Preface). A popular abridgement of Isabella's masterpiece 'The Book of Household Management', 'The Englishwoman's Cookery Book' first appeared in 1863. In keeping with the publisher's natural desire to capitalise on a fast-broadening audience it was several times reissued during the seventies and eighties. In 1890 it reappeared with the new title 'Mrs. Beeton's Cookery Book and Household Guide', later truncated simply to 'Mrs. Beeton's Cookery Book'. The evolution of this work is a fascinating reflection of social trends over almost a century; here for instance the section on 'Laundry' replaces the elbow-grease of numberless kitchen-maids with a competent assessment of the latest washing, wringing and ironing machines.
