Título: Mrs. Beeton's All About Cookery. New Edition...
Editorial: Ward Lock,
Año de publicación: 1911
8vo., with a coloured frontispiece, 11 coloured plates and 48 plates in monochrome, frontispiece frayed at edge, title lightly spotted, some occasional mild spotting to text , original decorative brown cloth blocked in gilt and black, gilt back, covers mildly age-marked, two corners mildly bruised, very neatly rebacked with old backstrip laid down, a very good, firm copy. With advertisement front endpapers in sepia and 11pp of similar advertisements at end. 'All About Cookery' (first issued under this title in 1871) is a derivative of Isabella Beeton's final work 'The Dictionary of Cookery'. The 'Dictionary' was first published in 1865 and designed to full the gap between her classic (but highly-priced) 'Book of Household Management' and the cheaper 'Cookery'. A key feature of the work is the arrangement of its subject matter - recipes, menus, implements and so on - in alphabetical order for easy reference. It is her only work so presented and to our belief the first compilation of its kind. The Edwardian editions are particularly comprehensive in their scope and coverage. See Driver, p.101 and our own bibliography (in progress). Cagle 563 cites the 1903 edition with fewer plates. N° de ref. de la librería 11524
