Editorial: Ward Lock, [c.1923]
Año de publicación: 1923
Condición de la sobrecubierta: Dust Jacket Included
8vo., with coloured frontispiece, 11 coloured plates and 48 plates in monochrome, fore-edges very lightly dust-soiled; original decorative brown cloth, upper board and backstrip blocked in blind and lettered in black, a remarkably well-preserved copy in unclipped dustwrapper. , the latter with minor loss (not affecting lettering) at head and tail of backstrip. 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 and Georgian editions are particularly comprehensive in their scope and coverage. SCARCE IN THE DUSTWRAPPER. 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 26171
