FRENCH COOKERY.: French Domestic Cookery. Combining Elegance with Economy; describing new cilunary Implements and Processes; the Management of the Table; Instructions for Carving; French, German, Polish, Spanish and Italian Cookery IN THE ORIGINAL CLOTH

According to the English editor's Preface this scarce work is 'an adapted translation of one of the most popular treatises on French Cookery, entitled La Cuisiniere de la Campagne et de la Ville ou Nouvelle Cuisine Economique, Paris, Audot, 1846'. The success and stature of the French original is compared to that of Mrs. Rundell. It has been suggested that this is in fact a second edition of a work with a similar title published by Thomas Boys in 1825 [Bitting, p. 554; Oxford, p. 157; Wellcome III, 67]; however this would contradict the Preface, and there is no mention of such a kinship in Oxford who lists both volumes. A very nice copy of an extremely scarce work. Oxford, p.177 (recording the publisher as 'David Boyne'). Not in Cagle. (Book ref. 16963) £960.00
